We should add a check for white space in the
PDL build directory path in the Makefile.PL
configuration step to avoid "mysterious" errors
in the make step. An exit 0 with a helpful
message is probably the way to go here. This
is a common problem for beginners and even unix
folks get bitten by this.

Longer term: fix PDL to work with whitespace paths,
perhaps after the discussed migration from the
ExtUtils::MakeMakeer framework to Module::Build.

    This feature has been added to the PDL development tree and is
    present in PDL-2.4.6_001 or later.
