It may also be in a here document; or a plain m4 regex, FWIW.  But the
latter doesn't show up in Autoconf luckily, so we can use @&t@ to break.

I have applied the two attached patches.

Does anybody care about space-tab in config.guess, config.sub?


        * NEWS, TODO, bin/ `filesystem' -> `file system'.

        * TODO, config/, lib/, lib/autoconf/c.m4,
        lib/autoconf/specific.m4, lib/autoconf/status.m4,
        lib/autoconf/types.m4, lib/autotest/general.m4,
        tests/, tests/ White space cleanup:
        remove some SPACE before TAB, or add quoting ('' or @&t@).
