Comment (by chuck.fry@…):

 This is broken in trunk as of 4/26/16 13:30 PST, but in a slightly
 different fashion, in an mtree script.

 env PATH=/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin CFLAGS="-pipe -Os" ./configure
 --enable-readline --prefix=/Users/cfry --with-applications-
 dir=/Users/cfry/Applications --with-no-root-privileges
 make install

 results in:

 * Warning: Using pre-generated man pages only.
 * asciidoc, xsltproc (port libxslt) and docbook-xsl are required to
 generate man pages from source.
 /usr/bin/install -c -d -o "cfry" -g "NDC\Domain Users" -m "0755"
 /usr/bin/install -c -d -o "cfry" -g "NDC\Domain Users" -m "0755"
 < prefix.mtree /usr/sbin/mtree -U -e -p "/Users/cfry" > /dev/null
 mtree: line 6: unknown group NDC\Domain
 make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
 make: *** [install] Error 1
 rdnzl:base cfry$

 I tried quoting the group name in base/doc/prefix.mtree, with no luck.
 Single quotes, double quotes, and backslashes in front of special
 characters all failed in the same way.
