That seems to be a lesser problem (still not a very good idea).
Actually the problem as reported seems to be
X11.tmpl:96:#define VendorDefines -DXVENDORNAME='"$(VENDORNAME)"' -DXVENDORNAMESHORT='"$(VENDORNAMESHORT)"'
which would work better if it were
X11.tmpl:96:#define VendorDefines -DXVENDORNAME=\"$(VENDORNAME)\" -DXVENDORNAMESHORT=\"$(VENDORNAMESHORT)\"
since the quotes otherwise are not echoed.
