I usually install the space-saver "ranlib.sh" version of ranlib on my

I've noticed a bug in it.  The script uses $1 when "$1" is called for --
thus, if ranlib is run on a file with spaces in it's name, an incorrect
argument is passed to "ar".

While there are several other cases where the shell script fails to
emulate the binary version of ar/ranlib exactly, this one causes a
spurious failure in automake-1.8.3's test suite (instspc.test).

A simple fix is appended:
