    [svn-r10821] tt#1771: allow `+` in `--prefix=`, etc. · 153f14c6
    David Goodell authored
    Satish pointed out that we were causing problems when the user specified
    directories with a `+` in them.  The updated version uses a `|`, which
    is a universally poor user choice for directory names (much like `:`
    would be).  Single quotes are now also used instead of double quotes.
    This sed code is still pretty fragile in the case of exotic path names,
    but it's better now.  If this is still a problem for users, the next
    step is either to give up on permitting make-time overrides of special
    vars like `prefix` or to at least disable that functionality with a
    configure switch of some sort.
