Issue #9010 has been updated by Hal Brodigan.


Tested against r44682 on bash 4.2.5 and got the same error:

$ ./configure --prefix="$HOME/foo bar"
$ make
...

----------------------------------------
It appears that the linking task fails when the --prefix value contains spaces.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. ./configure --prefix="$HOME/foo bar"
2. make

Expected Result: success
Actual Result:

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/hal/src/ruby-2.0.0-p247'

gcc: error: bar/lib: No such file or directory
