qemu's configure uses quoting properly and applies no
interpretation on the way through.  The dollars are doubled once
for the Makefile where this is set, once for the inner Makefile
where it is used.

However... there is a Solaris hack in configure that will break
with any --install option other than a bare word.  And I agree
with you anyway, it's a fragile approach.

qemu expects "gcc" and the like to refer to the host toolchain.
I think we only want the PATH set for install.  Ideally there
would be an /usr/bin/ia64-linux-gnu-install to accompany the
others and use the right strip, but oh well.
