New issue 169 by keithl: protoc will not build from a path that contains spaces on OS X 10.6

It gets most of the way through make, then errors out on a sed command.
I'm running it from the path "/Volumes/Red

libtool: link: (cd ".libs" && rm -f "libprotoc.dylib" && ln -s
"libprotoc.6.dylib" "libprotoc.dylib")

After I got it building in a folder without spaces, I moved it back to Red
Maple drive and ran "make install" because I had forgotten to earlier. I got
this error:

libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c .libs/libprotoc.lai
