[Ffmpeg-devel] Re: [Ffmpeg-user] Windows install dir containingwhitespace

I agree that it's not a perfect solution, but at least it yields an
error-free install. I suggest accepting the patch now as a "hotfix", and
develop a better solution later.
I've previously tried "/c/Program\ Files/FFmpeg" without sucess.
