Hi Ralf,
Well, how ARE you supposed to get around this ?
Here's an excerpt :
HOME is /cygdrive/c/Dokumente und Einstellungen/Roger While
build directory is $HOME/open-cobol-0.33

Due to the many layers of shell scripting in libtool, supporting spaces in filenames is complicated and must be proven for every case. It is a huge job.

Since you are using Cygwin, you should be able to use Cygwin's 'mount' facility to map the problem path so that it appears as a path without spaces in the name. Of course, this approach is not as user friendly as it could be and requires extra effort on the part of the person who builds the package.
