I've installed automake 1.15.1 into a path containing the @ symbol (Jenkins pipeline build), on running aclocal in my package the script fails with a perl error:

Setting up aclocal
Possible unintended interpolation of @1 in string at /tmp/@1/bin/aclocal line 72. aclocal: error: couldn't open directory '/tmp//share/aclocal-1.15': No such file or directory

Looking at aclocal line 72 I believe the path has been enclosed in the incorrect quotes, I've included a patch below which resolves the issue.
