I believe that there is some answer to any question. It is not the task of the users here to lecture others or criticize them for laziness or stupidity. There is little educational value in sarcasm.

If a question is badly formulated, one can give advice on how to do better.

If important information is missing, one can kindly ask for it.

Someone else being unfriendly or badly mannered is no justification for being so yourself.

Before posting any question about a problem with your code, please read this (twice).

Strangely though, pkg-config does print escaped paths in this scenario. Is it not following best practice?

When I use $(shell python script.py) in the makefile above, all other things being equal, it works. I don't understand what you mean by don't quote the variable expansion.
