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