Another instance of this problem is 

pkg-config --cflags gconf-2.0

which is now returning -DORBIT2\=1 instead of -DORBIT2=1 as it used to.

I have reverted the escaping in the Fedora pkgconfig package for now,
until we can work out a way to escape whitespace without breaking the
rest of the world...
