Should be the same deal as queries.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 64007 ***

Comment 2 Neil Prockter 2002-05-16 22:56:18 UTC
but how do i quote the current working directory? 
rpm -bb package.tar.gz fails if the cwd has a space in it, 
how do I quote that? 
I know I could type rpm -bb /lots/of/dirs/down/in/here\\\ 
so can I have this a feature request?
