Message:

user: add a warning not to use special characters in pathnames

Spaces and other specical characters in pathnames break builds of any
software packages using GNU make.

All of the GNU tools and RTEMS use make and this breaks builds. This
is a long standing known issue with GNU make, which can't handle spaces
in pathnames:

https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?712

This work was part of GCI 2018.

Probably closes #3450.

     66.. warning::
     67
     68    Do not put spaces or special characters in the directories you use to build
     69    RTEMS. Many of the packages built by the RSB use GNU *make*, which cannot
     70    handle spaces in pathnames. If there is a space in the pathname the build
     71    will fail. Special characters are also likely to confuse build systems.
