21:12 ugexe nine: is there a best way to handle the need to quote full paths in the rakudo/nqp/moarvm makefiles? cant just PREFIX="blah", because then "$(PREFIX)/foo" is ""blah"/foo". i simply quoted everything when it was used, but noticed that $(DESTDIR)/$(PREFIX) would be incorrect on windows. To fix DESTDIR we can just default it to the previous volume of PREFIX (which then defaults to
21:12 ugexe .dirname.child(.basename)). but i figured maybe its better to generate these values inside the build tools?
21:16 ugexe i was doing this in an attempt to get rakudo to build on windows when the user has a space in the name (or the path to perl). while i got the changes to the build tools working, precomp does not (Proc::Async or the perl6-m.bat on windows splits the first argument on a space if any of the other arguments contain a space or quotes)
21:16 ugexe although i have to wonder if the spaces thing isn't just windows
21:28 nine Sounds like a couple of issues? My experience is that it's better to generate paths in build tools rather than in a Makefile.
21:28 nine Seems like on Linux paths with spaces are fine for precomp
21:29 ugexe the path to perl6 has spaces in it?
21:30 ugexe im not sure the build tools can build rakudo is they are installing to a location with a space. but particularly if the path to perl(5) has a space

22:16 [Coke] pretty sure rakudo isn't space-in-path-clean; I did some work on that, I think mst did... but pretty sure there's still open tickets for it on rt
22:16 [Coke] RT #76930
