Nice discovery! :-)

Now it makes me wonder if anyone is actually using the BLFS book
method of building Firefox. I know there has been much talk of
the profile issue, and resolutions for it. I will be examining
this after the 6.1 release to see if we shouldn't use the Moz
installer to install the binaries, instead of the current
'make install'.

Seems weird that nobody has reported this whitespace thing. That
is why I wonder if anyone actually uses the book method.

If this is what we have to do to make it work, then so be it. :-)
The instructions will look funny in the book, but that is better
than a broken build. Cut-and-paste ability is without question
