When compiling Xorg-6.9.0 I noticed 78 strange gcc warnings, that are
due to the fact that the gccmakedep shell script mutilates arguments passed on
to gcc if the contain "'" and/or " * ".
The attached patch fixes this problem (and is inspired by the way
autoconf/configure handles the very same problem).
The second part of the patch might be useless because filenames containing
blanks will probably fail at many other places.

patch for gccmakedep to properly quote argumenets passed on to gcc
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
I sent this to xorg-devel@ so it won't rot here for all eternity. You're CC'd on it.
In the future, just send patches to the mailing list. They're harder to ignore that way.
This bug report's not doing any good, so I'm going to close it.
