Okay, I was maybe too specific.

I think a) is better. It's clean, easy to understand and
straightforward. I don't think <> should 'quote' spaces.

I agree that this is ugly with the current ifeq syntax. So I think it's
time to change the ifeq syntax :)

Try without debug options. The debug mode of ircd has not been properly         
debugged, and it is known to be unstable.
