It's worth mentioning that the patch won't fix the case where the path has other more obscure characters 
(quotation marks, dollar signs, etc).  A more general solution would be to implement a simple popen-style 
function that takes command line arguments as parameters in the same style that system does.  This 
could then be safe against all characters in file names.

Even with this patch applied Xcode 2.2 fails to build WebKit due to a bug in quoting path names with 
spaces that come from expanding BUILT_PRODUCTS_DIR in WebKit.xcodeproj's HEADER_SEARCH_PATHS 
setting.  I spent a while trying to work around this bug and have Xcode quote the path correctly but 
haven't found a solution yet.  Should a separate bug be filed in Bugzilla for this part of the problem?  (It 
may be fixed in Xcode 2.2.1 but I have not yet been able to check)
