When pkg-config is located in a directory with spaces, the script generated by pkg.m4 crashes whenever it tries to run the program.
For instance, when pkg-config is located in
I get the following messages from the configure script in cygwin:
./configure: line 2645: /cygdrive/c/Program: No such file or directory
I haven't tested, but this problem would also occur on Linux, should pkg-config ever be in a directory with spaces.
A patch is attached that should fix the problem with pkg-config. I have not looked for other commands in pkg.m4 that may have the same issue.
