Shell quoting is easy to fix, but more than just shell commands break if your
sources are in a path containing spaces.  The big problem is "make".  VPATH
will break, as will rules like
$(srcdir)/Makefile.in: @MAINT@ $(srcdir)/Makefile.tpl $(srcdir)/Makefile.def
    cd "$(srcdir)" && $(AUTOGEN) Makefile.def

For example, if srcdir="/src/i like spaces", the above target becomes
/src/i like spaces/Makefile.in:
and make will try to build three targets, "/src/i", "like", and

This is not just a binutils issue, since the top level configure and make files
are shared between binutils, gcc, and other projects.
