Hey Bob,

Unfortunately I need spaces on GNU systems and possibly elsewhere. I'm
sure there is a way to do this and it's simply a matter of coalescing
parts of the argument vector. From what I can see configure has the
correct arguments, but some were accidentally split. Remember that the
arguments are already correctly escaped and if I run what was logged in
config.log, it runs fine with the spaces.
