This is probably related to a problem I saw doing something like (ignore that
the particular arguments any not make sense, it is just an example of the bug)

CFLAGS="-Wall -Wformat-security" CPPFLAGS="-Wall -Wformat-security"
./autogen.sh ...

That is, setting CFLAGS and CPPFLAGS in the environment both to something with
space ends up with errors during the configuration.
