Hm, it works for me, i.e. the file (I took a random file of C++ source
code) was compiled and an object file produced.  Also, when I run `print
${pkg-config gtkmm-3.0 --cflags --libs}' in Eshell the output is not
wrapped in any quotes.  This is with both emacs-29 and emacs-30.  Are
you using a different version?
