Ok, here is a patch against current tlpretest.

I tried it from an installation that:
- was installed from an install-tl that is ina space-containing-path
- the network server also contained a space in the dir
- the destination also contains a space in the path

With this patch I could run install etc (but not --helP!) on linux.

If someone can test this on Mac and MOST IMPORTANT ON WINDOWS!!!!!
That would be great!!!!

Not all of them have been changed, only some.
