That's not it, did you see my fix for this problem posted
already? The issue is the leading spaces on the first
line of the define for checker-shell. Those propagate
into the callers, although they are reduced down to a
single space.

This will give you spaces in the result on any version of
make.

Here is my fix again for your reference.
