Build NSIS on Linux ubuntu issue


I need to be able to generate a Windows executable at the end of a build process that is performed ona linux Ubuntu box. So i tried to compile a NSIS version on that linux box. But I meet the following issue :

kmoyse@terbium:~/opt/nsis-2.51-src$ uname -a
Linux terbium 3.2.0-101-generic #141-Ubuntu SMP Thu Mar 10 21:43:24 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

sh: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
scons: *** [build/release/makensis/build.o] Error 2
scons: building terminated because of errors.

I think the issue come from the g++command parameter -DNSISCALL=__attribute__((__stdcall__)) which would work better if there were quotes, like : -DNSISCALL="__attribute__((__stdcall__))"...

How Can I workaround this ?
