Dear Norbert/ Jan

Having followed your advice, the setup of the dev build environment has now succeeded. Hopefully the build should proceed with similar success.

Thanks again.

and I'm pretty sure that confused the heck out of git to have spaces there

I can confirm that there are several problems having spaces in the directory, which is why we write
"A couple of warning, based on experience from earlier installations:

  *   Do not use a network drive, it will not work. There can also be problems with some older USB drives
  *   Do not use names longer than 8 char
  *   Only use a-z and 0-9 in the name, NO spaces or other special characters"
