      Description

      When attempting to use the CLI to compile/build an android project, if the path contains spaces then the command fails.

      Example:

      C:\my path>cordova create HelloWorld com.test.helloworld "HelloWorld"
      (success)
      C:\my path> cd helloworld
      C:\my path\helloworld>cordova platform add android
      (success)
      C:\my path\helloworld>cordova prepare android
      (success)
      C:\my path\helloworld>cordova compile android
      [Error: An error occurred while building the android project. 'C:\my' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
      ]

      The same error occurs if I manually run "platforms/android/cordova/build.bat"

      However if I manually run "platforms/android/ant debug" then the build appears to succeed (at least, it gives no errors and generates an .APK file)
