This should have been reported to the sbopkg list or site, as it's a
problem with junk I added to sbopkg (before 0.30.1 to deal with other
problems) which causes it to not handle SRCNAME's with spaces "properly"
(though I think the impropriety is spaces in the filenames in the first
place, but what can ya do). Anyway - try quoting 'SRCNAME' in l.2633
(assuming you're using 0.30.1). I'll look into making sure it's the
right general fix later but it seems to address this particular issue.

And, yeah - whenever you hit a snag with sbopkg, always assume it's a
problem with sbopkg or try it outside of sbopkg to see where the problem
really lies.
