Okay, let me quote from a Filser-Brief I read a few years ago: "It's
to drive out of the skin!" and "This makes me foxdevilswild!"

After treating the above variables with AC_SHELL_QUOTIFY, this is what
ends up in preview/Makefile:

packagedatadir = d:/tmp/foo\\\ bar/emacs-21.3/site-lisp/auctex$(null)
packagelispdir = d:/tmp/foo\\\ bar/emacs-21.3/site-lisp/auctex$(null)

So I guess we need a way to quote the values if they are computed by
preview/configure and to inhibit quoting if they come from the
top-level configure script.
