But there are zillions of places where Autoconf and Automake assume
that the working and source directories don't contain spaces.  Why
focus on this one?  That is, what usage of Autoconf will work if this
change is applied, but doesn't work now?

The reason I ask is that I want to systematically squash all the bugs
that might affect your case, but I don't have the time to fix all of
Autoconf and Automake to support file names with spaces in all
