untangle use of system vs. shell path(-list) semantics
"system" refers to the system's native shell, which is what qmake's system() invokes, and whose convention by far most commands invoked from a makefile will need. "shell" refers to the shell invoked by make, which diverges from the system shell only when qmake/mingw32-make is called from an msys shell. its conventions need to be used for anything the shell itself does (e.g., assembling env variables, but also command line argument unquoting) and the commands the mkspec sets according to the shell (e.g., QMAKE_MOVE).
