It might be nice to fix autoconf, but then you'll run into make. 'make' doesn't like spaces in directories either - and this is a fundamental design issue.

But doesn't make always run in the same directory? Anyway I'm placing this on the back burner for some time, and it's been a long time since I read the GNU make manual. But I think that this issue needs to be solved someday because directories with spaces are very common this days (Windows' "C:\Program Files", for example).

I'm now deeply immersed in cross-compiling, though. I'm also reviewing how Autoconf works and how it's applied through GNUstep. My knowledge of Autoconf is somewhat superficial right now. The first problem I've detected is that the macro AC_FUNC_SETPGRP prevents cross-compiling because it always needs to run the test program that it constructs in order to check the signature of setpgrp. I haven't found how to circumvent it yet.

if test $cross_compiling = no; then
  #set a default value

I was working on that, but the default for MingW is not what the normal default would be, but I wasn't entirely sure.
