Ticket #24 (closed defect: wontfix)
GHC in a directory with spaces causes configure failure
|Reported by:||larsv||Owned by:||refold|
I've attempted to build Gtk2Hs against the 2009.2.0 platform using the MinGW and MSYS versions recommended on the GHC wiki  with current autoconf/automake/libtool to be able to autoconf Gtk2Hs I run into an issue while configuring as the Platform installs into a folder with spaces (/c/Program Files (x86)/Haskell Platform/2009.2.0).
I'm unsure if the root cause is configure, Gtk2Hs or mingw, but it's most definitely due to there being spaces in the path. I assume there's a reason ghc usually installs to C:\ghc. This concern is lifted in ticket #6 by claus as well.
 -----8<----- checking for ghc... /c/Program Files (x86)/Haskell Platform/2009.2.0/ghc-6.10.2/bin/ghc ./configure: line 4749: test: too many arguments checking version of GHC... ./configure: line 4763: /c/Program: No such file or directory
configure: error: Gtj2Hs requires GHC 6.4 or later
