   Ok I found the working combination on Windows. :-) And it is actually
'the only logical solution'. :-)))

   "-sLARGE_FILE_TEMP=\"C:/Large File/large_file\""

   The quotes on the outside make the command processor (i.e. shell)
treat this whole string as a single command-line parameter.

   The quotes on the inside tell bjam that the value for LARGE_FILE_TEMP
is a single string instead of a list of two strings.

   Quotes on the inside need to be escaped so they would not get
processed by the command processor.

   Hope this helps.

   Best regards,
