Comment(by davidbuzz at gmail.com):

 Your problem can be even more easily solved by you following the standard
 practice of installing mingw in c:/mingw and msys in c:/msys/1.0/ ,
 neither of which has spaces.     If that offends you too much, then try
 using the 8.3 filenaming convention for your directory - al-ah:
 c:\progra~1\MinGW\

 Unless you supply a fully tested patch for witespace support in paths,
 it's not going to be changed, as the existing quoting mechanisms are
 already complex enough ( with PERL, DOS, and UNIX path conventions all
 already being used).

 trac-master, please close this ticket as "wontfix".
