Are you sure this is your Emacs Usually, it is installed at

yes, it is a link to the executable.

Aha! After writing a description of how I couldn't figure things out, I just realized that the above is NOT a link -- it is a script:

/usr/libexec/emacs/21.3.50/powerpc-apple-darwin6.2/ MacOS/Emacs $@

and that is what is causing the problems. this redirection is screwing things up (it never did for other command line arguments -- it must not be letting the quote marks go through escaped).

i changed it from a shell script to a symlink and configure worked fine.
