Ok, that's good enough for me!  Thanks again for testing.

The patches tested by Erik where slightly different from the ones I
posted. I did the whitespace changes in a separate patch and fixed the
copyright year thing spotted by Gary. I also changed

        IFS=' ''



The patches tested where also slightly different from the ones I
actually pushed. The pushed version does not have the unneeded quotes
in the above assignment and I changed one instance of

        if ! foo; then


        foo || {

since "if ! foo" isn't as portable according to Autoconf docs.

Anyway, those last changes are all harmless, I'm just putting all
cards on the table just in case...
