configure error: configure scrip doesn't recognize whitespace in path

Platform: Macintosh (PowerBook G4 15" display)
OS: Mac OS 10.3.6

Issue: Defect
Priority; P3

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

Description:
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.

Fix:
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.
