           Summary: Spaces in pathname breaks compilation
           Product: binutils
           Version: unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: binutils
        AssignedTo: address@hidden
        ReportedBy: address@hidden

This is a bug report from mspgcc4. The developer told me it was a binutils
issue, so I should report it here.

When trying to compile on my machine, I put the mspgcc4 source code into a
folder which has a space in one of the parent paths. It bombs out with a
difficult-to-interpret message (further below). After thinking about it, it
became clear what the problem was, but this message was hidden amongst many
other resulting errors, so it took a while to find out why it was having

At the very least, it should fail gracefully with a clear error message, like
"Cannot compile in a directory containing spaces in the pathname".

However, it should really compile without any issues. Spaces in the pathname
shouldn't be a problem in modern operating systems, and errors like these point
to a need for better escaping in certain shell commands.
