Yeah, something like that. :-) Thanks! I knew something like that was
needed, but I did not feel like writing it.
I took your snipped and adapted it slightly, to improve readability for
common cases. E.g. if you call --with-extra-cflags="-DFOO -DBAR" it will
store it as --with-extra-cflags='-DFOO -DBAR' rather than
'--with-extra-cflags=-DFOO -DBAR'. They both evaluate to the same
result, but the former is -- to me, at least, more easy to read and more
likely to match what the user initially wrote.
This interception needs to happen early, in the configure wrapper.
I've tried to make this break with various evil combinations, but
failed, so I think it's fairly robust. (And once again I really miss
that I can't turn such adhoc testing into proper tests. :-( )
Here's a new webrev:
