Libtool do not seem to be able to build a project in a directory name
containing SPC:

$ libtool --version (GNU libtool) 1.4.3 (1.922.2.111 2002/10/23 02:54:36)
$ wget
$ tar xfz libidn-0.1.14.tar.gz
$ mv libidn-0.1.14 "foo bar"
$ cd "foo bar"
$ ./configure && make check
$ ./idn
./idn: cd: /home/jas/src/foo: No such file or directory
gcc: bar/.libs/9973-lt-idn: No such file or directory

The libtool generated script for the binaries doesn't work, they

relink_command="(cd /home/jas/src/foo bar; { test -z \"\${LIBRARY_...

The directory name must be escaped.  I did not find any configuration
that affect this, it seems libtool discovered the PWD itself and used
it -- if so, it should only use it after escaping it.

(I tried libtool 1.5a too, same problem.)
