    I bet compilation-error-regexp-alist's value is at fault.

It is grep-regexp-alist.  It would be easy to change it to allow space
in the file name, but I think that this change would make it too
susceptible to false matches.  Please try this change if you like.  If
you find that it works fine, that would be a good reason to install

By the way, I don't think that the hooking up of PPP is done in Linux,
the kernel.  You're probably talking about the larger GNU/Linux
operating system, which many people call "Linux" but ought not.
Would you please call it "GNU/Linux", or "GNU+Linux", or something
else that indicates it is the combination of GNU and Linux?

See http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html for more explanation.
