It was only way to build such trick. Else how you will notice compiler to build preprocessor string
without space characters?
Well, the same code with space characters around __MACHINE__:
#define _INLINES <biewlib/sysdep/ __MACHINE__ /_inlines.h>
#define __CONFIG <biewlib/sysdep/ __MACHINE__ /__config.h>
biewlib/sysdep/_sys_dep.h:30:22: biewlib/sysdep/ ia32 /__config.h: No such file or directory
biewlib/sysdep/_sys_dep.h:31:22: biewlib/sysdep/ ia32 /_inlines.h: No such file or directory

Well, other trick:
#define _INLINES <"biewlib/sysdep/"__MACHINE__"/_inlines.h">
#define __CONFIG <"biewlib/sysdep/"__MACHINE__"/__config.h">
biewlib/sysdep/_sys_dep.h:30:22: "biewlib/sysdep/"ia32"/__config.h": No such file or directory
biewlib/sysdep/_sys_dep.h:31:22: "biewlib/sysdep/"ia32"/_inlines.h": No such file or directory
So I have no solutions with new gcc-3.x branch for now.
Need some other trick.
