Kubuntu 17.04
libtool 2.4.6

Steps to reproduce:
1. mkdir ~/folder\ with\ spaces\ in\ it
2. cd ~/folder\ with\ spaces\ in\ it
3. git clone https://github.com/whot/libinput.git
4. cd libinput
5. Follow build instructions according to your distro:
5a. 
https://wayland.freedesktop.org/libinput/doc/latest/building_libinput.html#building_dependencies
5b. 
https://wayland.freedesktop.org/libinput/doc/latest/building_libinput.html#building_autotools
6. `make`



Expected results:
The project compiles


Actual results:
while changing directories, make dies because libtool can't handle paths 
with spaces:

make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/nate/folder with spaces in 
it/libinput/test'
Making all in tools
make[2]: Entering directory '/home/nate/folder with spaces in 
it/libinput/tools'
   CC       libshared_la-shared.lo
   CCLD     libshared.la
ar: `u' modifier ignored since `D' is the default (see `U')
   CC       libinput-libinput-tool.o
   CCLD     libinput
libtool:   error: cannot find the library 'it/libinput/src/libinput.la' 
or unhandled argument 'it/libinput/src/libinput.la'
