autoconf doesn't support spaces in directory names

I'm using autoconf 2.61 on cygwin where my home directory is "/home/Paul Brannan". I have a project located in my home directory which uses automake.

When I run configure, I see:

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
/home/Paul: /home/Paul: is a directory
configure: WARNING: `missing' script is too old or missing

The problem is that $srcdir and $am_aux_dir are not quoted when they are used.

I have worked around this bug by post-processing the configure script after autoconf is run.
