I think what is happening is that, to take care of the possibility  
that the path to the distiller has spaces in the name, simpdftex is  
calling distiller with quotes around it

"${distillerprog}" ...

so the argument is being taken as part of the path. Not much one can  
do about that.

Good Luck,
