"Sensible default" for IFS doesn't include a newline

Debian Bug#98492 and #95447

If IFS is unset, libtool applies the "sensible default" of
<space><tag>.  This has the unfortunate consequence of not splitting
values containing new lines which is the default behaviour.

This patch changes the setting to <space><tab><newline> which is more
often the default, and what shell scripts libtool might be calling
probably expect.
