If you use the html version on the OS X command line, the variable will keep
the quotes inside the value instead of acting like a string delimiter:

Macintosh:temp thbar$ export
SOMEVAR="/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig"
Macintosh:temp thbar$ echo $SOMEVAR
*"/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig"*

On the other hand, if you use the regular double-quote, you'll get the
expected behaviour:

Macintosh:temp thbar$ export
SOMEVAR="/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig"
Macintosh:temp thbar$ echo $SOMEVAR
*/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig
*

hope this helps
