Hello GNU folks,

I recently had a problem building automake via Homebrew on OS X. Turns =
out the problem was that the path to Xcode contained a space: =
/Applications/Xcode 7.app =E2=80=94 Removing the space caused the build =
to work correctly.

To Reproduce:
1. Install Xcode
2. Change the path from /Applications/Xcode.app to /Applications/Xcode =
7.app
3. sudo xcode-select sudo xcode-select --switch /Applications/Xcode\ =
7.app/
4. brew install automake

Result:
make: /Applications/Xcode: No such file or directory
make: *** [install-am] Error 1

Workaround:
Rename Xcode 7.app to Xcode7.app (sans the space), and then re-run =
xcode-select on the new path. The build now works.

Spaces really should be ok though! :)
