Subject: on Windows, quote spaces in the perl.exe path
Hi, Could Module::Build::_discover_perl_interpreter() quote spaces in the path to perl.exe? I have Perl installed under c:\Program Files\perl\bin\perl.exe (restricted environment, unfortunately). Using the unquoted path fails to run perl. The unquoted path I'm talking about shows up in the Makefile generated within t/compat.t. Though it's only a test, I am afraid this may resurface in real usage. (Fortunately, Module::Build itself does a very good job in quoting $perl when invoking it directly. It's just when the path ends up in Makefile.)
