Spaces are not really supported (and it's long time practice to use
space separation in Makefile, without extra quoting), so this is
unlikely to be fixed. It *might* work if all involved files can be
located without using absolute filenames in configure and Makefile.
E.g., $(CC) is intentionally expanded without quoting in the Makefile,
to support settings like CC="gcc -m64".
