...

You need to use the macval function: Following the example below:

local c "`macval(a)' `macval(b)'"

macro list
<snip>
_c: `M1' `M2'
<snip>

No, that doesn't work:
. loc M1 hello
. loc M2 goodbye
. loc a \`M1'
. loc b \`M2'
. loc c `a' `b'
. mac list
_c:             hello goodbye
_b:             `M2'
_a:             `M1'
_M2:            goodbye
_M1:            hello

But I want:
_c:             `M1' `M2'
