It is not possible to build packages in a path that contains spaces.  Every 
single Debian package is broken in this way.  Files generated by Autoconf and 
Automake also don't support this, and the Automake upstream developers made 
it clear that it is not reasonable to fix this.

Please just rename your directories.  This is a fight you cannot win.
