bug#24403: Automake fails to build via Homebrew if path to Xcode contains a space
Hello GNU folks,
I recently had a problem building automake via Homebrew on OS X. Turns out the problem was that the path to Xcode contained a space: /Applications/Xcode 7.app — Removing the space caused the build to work correctly.
1. Install Xcode
2. Change the path from /Applications/Xcode.app to /Applications/Xcode 7.app
3. sudo xcode-select sudo xcode-select --switch /Applications/Xcode\ 7.app/
4. brew install automake
make: /Applications/Xcode: No such file or directory
make: *** [install-am] Error 1
Rename Xcode 7.app to Xcode7.app (sans the space), and then re-run xcode-select on the new path. The build now works.
