Ah, it seems there is another directory added?  I was completely under
the impression that the problem is that the binary distribution is
installed to the directory with spaces in its name.

I guess this is the HAVE_* lines, the [ -f file ] part that you have
changed in the commit.

See http://darcs.haskell.org/ghcBuilder/builders/pgj/1033/18.html for
the details.  There you should find a lot of error messages like this

[: /tmp/builder/tempbuild/build/bindisttest/install
dir/lib/ghc-7.7.20130512/base- unexpected operator

No output.  But:

$ [ -f "foo bar" baz ] && echo yes
[: foo bar: unexpected operator
