Attached patch quotes some paths.

Otherwise Parrot won't built if living below a directory containing
spaces (eg "C:/Documents and Settings").

Will this have problems if a directory name contains quotes? I feel
paranoid today.

Never thought about this, but quite likely, yes. On the other hand, I
don't know how quotes would be escaped, to create such a directory in
first place. I guess " is one of the characters that shouldn't be
used anywhere in a path, like * | or >.
