configure error, configure script doesn't recognize whitespace in path
while configuring apr

I tried to build subversion under OS X. I placed the source in my
download folder which is "/users/hp/Safari Download" then I ran the
command ./configure --prefix=/usr
as you can see on the output the configure script fails with a message
that /users/hp/Safari couldn't be found.

By the error message I figured out that, there was something wrong with
the path, and that the whitespace wasn't escaped.

moved the source directory to another path (without whitespaces in it)
and ran the configure script again. Then it wasn't any problems at all.
