Hmm... that's right. There's whitespace in the next line. Maybe it's a bug 
in bash's parser?

Wait, that's inside a Makefile, so the \ are make's continuation, not the 
shell's. And remember that every command in make must be be preceded by a 
tabulation (not space). So I can only guess it removes those tabs when 
building the line.

I cannot reproduce it with my GNU make.
