Hi Xyne,

I'd like to pick up the chance to clearify this for my personal record,
because I had problem with the space in the pkgdir path. What do you
suggest? Is this meant by "variable quoting"?

$ cd "${foo}"

What would be a apropriate solution in the PKGBUILD? This?

make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install
