I am pretty sure that I have had to deal with this in the past on unix, 
writing shell or Perl scripts i.e. not in the context of FPC. It might, 
in the general case, be easier to enforce a rule that filenames don't 
contain characters which have special significance, at which point 
option values aren't going to need to be quoted except for cases like 
OPT= passed to the FPC build.
