Yes.  See automake/tests/instspc.test for what is expected to work and
what fails, and why.  distcheck is a developer's tool -- it helps to
check that your packaging works, but it's not a mandatory target in the
sense that it needs to work everywhere.  Just distcheck your package in
a build path that does not contain spaces.  /tmp comes to mind.

Hope that helps.
