Now I have.

I tried reproducing your error. I get "/bin/sh: TEST\: not found"
instead of your "no such file or directory", but tha's probably due to
differing shells.

It appears that some earlier patches not get it quite right.
They're labelled "SIS: KHL 2005-02-18  SpacesInSource fix".
Around line 544 DIRVISH_SRC is set to $env_srctree, which is an escaped
version of $srctree. However, $srctree (at this point anyway) is already
sufficiently escaped, it appears. Reverting the changes there fixes it
for me. The following patch should work:
