Another "real life" example is something like

                             ^ make doesn't like that either

I would indeed prefer to have those builds fixed. Can't be too many (maybe 0.5%
total, if at all. gawk is the only example so far).

I hope it is simple enough to fix them so they use relative paths (not sure
if quoting is feasible or possible at all).
