Building BIND 9.17.11 ( in directory with space (' ') or parenthesis fails to build ( on Fedora 33:

$ ./configure && make -j12

/bin/sh ../../libtool  --tag=CC   --mode=link gcc -Wall -Wextra -Wwrite-strings -Wpointer-arith -Wno-missing-field-initializers -Wformat -Wshadow -Werror=implicit-function-declaration -Werror=missing-prototypes -Werror=format-security -Werror=parentheses -Werror=implicit -Werror=strict-prototypes -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks -fdiagnostics-show-option -g -O2 -pthread   -release "9.17.11"  -o -rpath /usr/local/lib  libisccc_la-alist.lo libisccc_la-base64.lo libisccc_la-cc.lo libisccc_la-ccmsg.lo libisccc_la-result.lo libisccc_la-sexpr.lo libisccc_la-symtab.lo ../../lib/isc/ -lnghttp2

If parenthesis is in the path it fails in the configure step:

$ ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
./configure: eval: line 2834: syntax error near unexpected token `('
./configure: eval: line 2834: `${SHELL} /home/newman/break(1)neck/bind-9.17.11/missing --is-lightweight'

The BIND9 tarball is build with "make dist" on a host with Debian 10 "Buster". I build the tarball on Fedora 33 with Autoconf 2.71 but no luck in any of these cases.
