Hmm... interesting problem.  I checked it out and it isn't that it is
removing the ' characters.  Instead of using a shell such as bash to run
gcc it is doing it directly through the use of fork and execvp.  The
shell is what does the ' execution while execvp just sends them as two
unusual arguments.  I don't know of a good quick fix.  It's possible a
quick hack could be done to call a shell instead of gcc.  Another
possibility is to make a shell script that calls gcc and set that as
the compiler.  (Unfortunately I've mentioned that as a fix to the
continuous '-c' problem and no one has gotten around to making a shell
script that can detect the compile and link phases.)

e_exec_inf does the execvp call.  It is called in the e_comp function.
Both functions are in we_prog.c.  (Ugh.  It communicates through a file.)
