Parrot won't install when there's a space in the --prefix path

Parrot fails to install when it was configured with --prefix='/tmp/spacey path'. Here's the symptom:

cc -o installable_parrot \
    src/main.o src/install_config.o \
    -Wl,-rpath=/home/moritz/tmp/spacey prefix/lib -L/nocrypt-home/moritz/source/parrot-all/blib/lib -lparrot -lpthread -lm -L/usr/lib  -licuuc -licudata -lpthread -lm -ldl -lm -lpthread -lcrypt -lrt -lgmp -lreadline  -L/usr/local/lib -Wl,-E  
cc: prefix/lib: No such file or directory
make: *** [installable_parrot] Error 1

The generated Makefile contains

    src/install_config$(O) \
	$(LINK) -o $@ \
    src/main$(O) src/install_config$(O) \
    -Wl,-rpath=/home/moritz/tmp/spacey prefix/lib $(ALL_PARROT_LIBS) $(LINKFLAGS)

Seems the rpath needs some escaping/quoting.

Attached is a patch that seems to fit the bill.

I think it's windows safe, but needs testing.

Most of the paths were fixable in the makefile, but the rpath dirs needed massaging in the config step, as they have a single config param that includes command line args and a (potentially space-containing) path.

The patch works fine for me, and if it is applied, I'm fine with closing this ticket.

I've tested this patch on Windows and it works well. I just pushed it to master in 05ab1f5. Thanks!

Confirmed. Builds and installs fine in /tmp/My Parrot.
