I think it's better to recognize those lines and ignore spaces. Doing
otherwise will make Automake somewhat similar to Python because the
formatting will affect the result (without being considered a bug).

I also feel uneasy about it, but this kind of hacks is very dirty. Whoever
uses them should try to find a better way and maybe ask the Automake team
for help.
