Right, sorry -- you don't need the quotes if you're not in functlet
args. In this case, if you add quotes around the string, those will
be part of the field value (and in this case, since that field is
used to provide the value that is fork/exec'ed, you'll end up trying
to launch "foo" [which will fail] as opposed to foo [which would
success]).

For example, I use this in my ini file:

hostfile = /users/jsquyres/svn/mtt-core/&shell("hostname")/hostfile

So just to confirm -- this works:

command = ./configure --with-mpi-dir=&test_prefix(); gmake

Right?
