I am using automake 1.11.6 and autoconf 2.68  on Fedora 17 and cannot 
configure a simple hello world program if it is placed into a directory 
with "(" and ")".

To reproduce:

1. Create a directory: mkdir test\(1\)

2. Take the attached tar file and untar it:
    cd test\(1\)
    tar -xzvf helloworld.tar.gz

3. autoreconf -i

4. now try and configure the project using ./configure or absolutely
    using sh -c '~/test\(1\)/configure'

In either case, you will get a failure trying to invoke "missing" due to 
the unexpected '(' token in the directory name.

bash $ ./configure
checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking target system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
./configure: eval: line 2084: syntax error near unexpected token `('
./configure: eval: line 2084: `${SHELL} 
/home/cygnus/jjohnstn/test(1)/missing --run true'
