Not a good idea.  Libtool and, FWIW, many other packages that use
Autoconf will not like to run in directories with a path with spaces in
the name.  We know this is technically suboptimal, but the fact that
many shell scripts are involved together with the fact that white space
is the common shell word delimiter makes this near impossible to fix.

It's much less work if you rename your directory differently -- you may
add a symlink to keep the original path working for other software, e.g.:

  mv 'Added Programs' Added_Programs
  ln -s Added_Programs 'Added Programs'

All your subsequent failures should be caused by this.
