Hhh ... didn't know this ... it might well cause horrible problems ...
make doesn't like spaces in paths ... it always assumes that no filename
or path has spaces in it, and it's like a design assumption, I'm not sure
there's something we can do about it ... make won't even *start*
processing a gnustep-make GNUmakefile if there are spaces in paths,
because just the first command,

include $(GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES)/common.make

will *never* work if the GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES path has an embedded space in
it ... and this is only the first command ...
