Tripping up MS

[ #19509 ]
As posted by Nobu Nakada:

cl.exe apparently doesn't pass arguments with spaces to link.exe correctly.

  $ cat a.c
  int main(int argc, char **argv)
  {
      return 0;
  }

  $ cat a.bat
  @cl.exe -Fea.exe a.c /link "/libpath:"c:\Program Files""

  $ ./a.bat

  /out:a.exe

  Files
  a.obj
  LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file "Files.obj"

And I thought the Solaris linker was a pain. Good grief.
