While paths with spaces in them may be a fact of reality, they are
non-portable according to POSIX.  It is going to be an uphill battle if
you want to submit patches to make autoconf automatically handle file
names with spaces, as there is nothing portable about them.

Even if Automake, Autoconf, libtool, intrinsics can be proven to work with spaces, many significant build environments would still fail. This is because autotools provide just part of the build configuration. The project developer adds the rest.
