Subject: [Boost-build] Bjam /b2 unable to parse some file names with spaces correctly

I am baffled (and stuck) by my failure to specify filenames with include spaces correctly.
These specification appears to work as expected
"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\\VC\\bin\\cl.exe"
<linkflags>-L"C:/Program Files (x86)/Windows Kits/10/Lib/10.0.10586.0/ucrt/x64"
<linkflags>"-L"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Windows Kits\\10\\Lib\\10.0.10586.0\\ucrt\\x64""
It is obviously essential to be able to specify Visual Studio files in their standard installed location.
(However daft the idea of not calling the folder Program_Files_32bit ...)
Thanks for any advice (sympathy ...)
