Build Perl win32 with a ' ' in install dirby fdesar (Beadle)

fdesar has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Hi, Monk !
I'm trying to build Perl from source on a win32 system.
Everything goes alright but I encounter a very big problem with the installation PATH as it halas MUST include a space charater as in 'c:\Program File\somedir\lib\perl5 and I also need the @INC content points to c:\Program Files\somedir\lib\perl5\....
So I tried setting :
INST_TOP *= $(INST_DRV)\Program\ Files\somedir\lib\perl5
in the Win32\Makefile.mk but it seems it doesn't to like this space character at all:
It compiles OK, runs tests OK but won't install at all :-(
Anyone having I idea on how to get around this issue ?
Many thank for your time and wisdom,
