CONF_FILES with spaces in names doesn't work. Tried these ways, non of them worked:

CONF_FILES+=    ${EGDIR}/file\ name.conf ${PKG_SYSCONFDIR}/file\ name.conf
CONF_FILES+=    "${EGDIR}/file name.conf" "${PKG_SYSCONFDIR}/file name.conf"
CONF_FILES+=    "${EGDIR}/file\ name.conf" "${PKG_SYSCONFDIR}/file\ name.conf"
