dired problem on AIX

This relates to dired in GNU Emacs 20.7.2.

The regular expression that dired uses for locating file names in `ls'
output does not quite work for IBM's AIX 4.3.0.  For old files they put
2 spaces after the year, which dired-move-to-filename-regexp does not
handle and dired winds up thinking that there's a space at the beginning
of these file names.  Here's an example listing:

-rwxr-xr-x   1 ksh0536  jast       16570 Aug 27 16:40 config.status
-rwxr-xr-x   1 ksh0536  jast       19236 Feb 21 1997  config.sub

I believe this can be fixed by changing line 1385 of dired.el

(concat ".*[0-9]" s "\\(" western "\\|" japanese "\\)" s))

to instead be

(concat ".*[0-9]" s "\\(" western "\\|" japanese "\\)" s "+"))

The "+" at the end then matches one or more spaces after the year.
