We fixed a lot of whitespace-in-pwd related issues in git Automake (and
recent Autoconf), but for one particular (and unfortunately quite
common) issue, I don't know of a good fix that doesn't break backward
compatibility for some other uses.  Offhand I'm not sure whether the
issue you're hitting matches this, so can you please state which
Autoconf version you're using (and if not 2.62, then retry with that),
if you have lots of time on your hands can you try using git Autoconf,
and otherwise please show how you invoke configure and how it fails?

I might not get to you again for some days.
