[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: cdbs
Version: 0.4.49
Severity: normal

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---
I am unable to build gdb from source on a machine running sid. I did

$apt-get source gdb
$cd gdb-6.6.dfsg/
$ dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -rfakeroot

The build log is attached in this email. The buildlog suggests that this is a
problem with cdbs using $(CURDIR) without using quotes.

Initially I posted the problem at
http://lists.debian.org/debian-mentors/2007/08/msg00317.html and they
suggested me to file a bug against cdbs.

It is not possible to build packages in a path that contains spaces.  Every 
single Debian package is broken in this way.  Files generated by Autoconf and 
Automake also don't support this, and the Automake upstream developers made 
it clear that it is not reasonable to fix this.

Please just rename your directories.  This is a fight you cannot win.
