Hmmm, no reaction? This is a nasty issue that has bitten me badly once and probably has caused problems for others as well.  A small note in the documentation like the one I provided could work wonders...

The GNU make include directive does not support quoting and thus no whitespace in filenames.  This is not immediately clear from the manual and I have stumbled over this issue in the past.  Here is a patch to address this problem by mentioning it explicitly in the manual.
