Hi!

Don't know if this is interesting or not but looks like libtool can't handl=
e a space in folder names. A newbie like your truly got baffled by this for=
 a while. I was compiling libwnck-3-0 from Trisquel and it stopped like thi=
s:

GISCAN Wnck-3.0.gir
libtool: link: cannot find the library `' or unhandled argument `Folder/lib=
wnck3-3.2.0/libwnck'
linking of temporary binary failed: Command '['/bin/bash', '../libtool', '-=
-mode=3Dlink', '--tag=3DCC', '--silent', 'gcc', '-o', '/home/tris/Desktop/U=
ntitled Folder/libwnck3-3.2.0/libwnck/tmp-introspectGMWqNI/Wnck-3.0', '-exp=
ort-dynamic', '-L.', 'libwnck-3.la', '-pthread', '-lgio-2.0', '-lgobject-2.=
0', '-lgmodule-2.0', '-lgthread-2.0', '-lrt', '-lglib-2.0', '/home/tris/Des=
ktop/Untitled Folder/libwnck3-3.2.0/libwnck/tmp-introspectGMWqNI/Wnck-3.0.o=
']' returned non-zero exit status 1
make[2]: *** [Wnck-3.0.gir] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/tris/Desktop/Untitled Folder/libwnck3-3.2=
.0/libwnck'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/tris/Desktop/Untitled Folder/libwnck3-3.2=
.0'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Simply renaming "Untitled folder" to "whatever" helped.

Thank you for the free software!
