Unwrapped paths in config.sub and config.guess

The variables configfsf_{sub,guess} that hold paths in the scripts
config.{sub,guess} should be wrapped in quotes, e.g.,
$SHELL $configfsf_guess
should be called as
$SHELL "$configfsf_guess"

Here is a patch in case you are interested:

This is partially moot, as the need for quotes there might be an indicator
of an "unsafe srcdir value", which is only checked later in the configure;
nonetheless, that error message would be more clear.
