I am using Mac OS X 10.5.6 on an Intel iMac. When I do

$ mkdir ~/Desktop/scanning\ from\ the\ command\ line
$ cd ~/Desktop/scanning\ from\ the\ command\ line
$ curl 'http://alioth.debian.org/snapshots.php?group_id=30186' > sane- 
$ open sane-scm-latest.tar.gz
$ cd sane-scm-2009-03-24/sane-backends
$ export BACKENDS="pixma canon"
$ ./configure --build=x86-apple-osx

I get

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
/bin/sh: /Users/cps/Desktop/scanning: No such file or directory
configure: WARNING: `missing' script is too old or missing

It would seem that some part of configure is not coping with
~/Desktop/scanning\ from\ the\ command\ line
having spaces in its name.
