phpize does not escape spaces properly when running autoconf, this leads to autoconf not found-error.

In line 102: if test ! -x "`$php_shtool path $PHP_AUTOHEADER`"; then
and 114: if test ! -x "`$php_shtool path $PHP_AUTOHEADER`"; then

something doesn't get  escaped properly.

(Yes, I know there are two different bug reports with same issue, but the code lines are different)

Reproduce code:
$ mkdir ~/directory\ foo
$ cd ~/directory\ foo
$ tar -xf ~/pecl.extension.tar
$ cd name_of_ext-0.1
$ phpize

Expected result:
phpize generates the necessary files to build extension

Actual result:
$ phpize
Configuring for:
PHP Api Version:         20041225
Zend Module Api No:      20060613
Zend Extension Api No:   220060519
/usr/bin/phpize: line 106: /home/Marco/directory: No such file or directory
Cannot find autoconf. Please check your autoconf installation and the $PHP_AUTOCONF
environment variable is set correctly and then rerun this script.

This is more than phpize problem. There are several other places in the build system that do not support spaces in paths. I'm trying to fix it now..

Unfortunately fixing this requires fixing several 3rd party tools as well. And as we can not control those, I've added a sanity check to phpize to not allow continuing if paths contain whitespace.

Easy workaround: Create symlink under path without spaces if you can not rename it.
