THANK YOU!  Actually, the way the code is written, I think
you can rest assured that the first character of base_compile
will always be a space.  All the text insertions look like

     base_compile="$base_compile $lastarg"

Of course, if you take advantage of this information, then
you *MUST* document the fact that later usage DEPENDS upon
a space being the first character.  The earlier code did
not explain the issue.

Anyway, thanks again. - Bruce
