Subject: INSTALL script does not handle spaces in pathnames correctly (PR#242)

I was attempting to install the DSE package from a directory whose
pathname includes spaces. The INSTALL script interprets spaces in
the pathname as a separator. For example:
[lyndon@beat Rdse]$ pwd
/home/lyndon/doc/uni/415.704 Computer Systems Peformance Analysis/R/Rdse
[lyndon@beat Rdse]$ ~/src/cvs-stuff/R/bin/R INSTALL --no-docs -l ../lib/
/home/lyndon/src/cvs-stuff/R/bin/INSTALL: /home/lyndon/doc/uni/415.704: No such
file or directory
Installing package `415.704' ...
No man pages found in package `415.704'
Installing package `Computer' ...
No man pages found in package `Computer'
Installing package `Systems' ...
No man pages found in package `Systems'
Installing package `Peformance' ...
No man pages found in package `Peformance'
/home/lyndon/src/cvs-stuff/R/bin/INSTALL: Analysis/R/Rdse/syskern: No such file
Installing package `syskern' ...
No man pages found in package `syskern'
One possibility would be to change the separator used in the install
script from a space to a colon.
