So the Linux interpreter strips off any trailing space characters before

that this is a bug in NetBSD (SUS only mentions #! notation in a single

be a bit more resiliant here.

How would you make "make" to be a bit more resilient ?
I might have a file " " which I want to use with make, with

make -f" "

Actually, if I understand correctly, it's getting an empty string, not a space. No filename can be zero length, so make can safely ignore it.
