What I did was this: 'make install PREFIX=c:\lazarus\fpc\2.7.1\' the
trailing backslash is important...

Then make runs (among others) the following command:
.\fpmake.exe install --localunitdir=../.. --globalunitdir=.. --os=win32 --cpu=i386 -o -Ur -o -Xs -o -O2 -o -n -o -FuC:/svn/fpc-trunk/rtl/units/i386-win32 -o -FuC:/svn/fpc-trunk/packages/hash/units/i386-win32 -o -FuC:/svn/fpc-trunk/packages/paszlib/units/i386-win32 -o -FuC:/svn/fpc-trunk/packages/fcl-process/units/i386-win32 -o -FuC:/svn/fpc-trunk/packages/fpmkunit/units/i386-win32 -o -FE. -o -FUunits/i386-win32 -o -di386 -o -dRELEASE --compiler=C:/svn/fpc-trunk/compiler/ppc386.exe --prefix=c:\lazarus\fpc\2.7.1\  --unitinstalldir=c:\lazarus\fpc\2.7.1\/units/i386-win32/fcl-base -ie -d

Note the two spaces after the prefix. Which result in the error message
that the directory "c:\lazarus\fpc\2.7.1 \bin" coudn't be created. (Note
the space)

Can you reproduce that? I tried with a simple hello-world kind of
application and in that case I can't reproduce it either.

This is on Windows 7 in a virtual machine. (kvm)
