What did you do?

While testing whether it would be possible to do
PKG_CONFIG="go run test.com config" go run .

I noticed that the var is passed through strings.Fields

return envList("PKG_CONFIG", cfg.DefaultPkgConfig)[0]

func envList(key, def string) []string {
v := cfg.Getenv(key)
if v == "" {
v = def
}
return strings.Fields(v)
}

Even if the use case of PKG_CONFIG="go run test.com config" isn't supposed to work, the code will break if the dir to pkg-config contains spaces

What did you expect to see?

successful build

What did you see instead?

flag provided but not defined: -cflags
Go is a tool for managing Go source code.
<insert go help text>

Issue is related to #41400 but creating a new issue as it is a different var.
