I don't think the GNU autotools all work correctly for pathnames with
So, I don't that is not something to worry too much about for the moment.

HOWEVER, there are NO spaces in my srcdir, blddir, or even in prefix.
There are no characters other than "[-._/0-9a-zA-Z]".
So, how then am I hitting this problem?

I've been testing just fine 1 day before w/o seeing this problem.
It is possible something changed in my testing setup, but I can't recall

I am going to keep poking at this, but would appreciate any clues as to
where to look.
