I'm currently working on a package which have whitespaces in the filenames.
I tried to add backslashes (like it is done in sysutils/xraidadmin) to my
$(WRKSRC) variable but it didn't work.

Therefore all the cd to build or install the package fails.
Also, pkglint throws a warning for mine and the xraidadmin package.

Any hint as to how I can handle spaces in the $(WRKSRC) path?
