Description Nicholas Miell 2011-02-04 14:25:38 UTC
${pc_top_builddir} expands to \$\(top_builddir\), which is pretty clearly intended to be a make variable reference, except the shell escaping breaks it.

    Allow $() through unescaped.
    $(foo) is used for make escapes, so allow them through.
    Freedesktop #33920
