I think keeping the intermediate variable is worthwhile.  Infact, ISTR having
used a \012\011\040 ordering to avoid accidental trailing whitespace cleanups
in the past (quite possibly dotted around the libtool source tree even now!).

If this patch is needed to address a known problem with ash, maybe it should
be submitted to the autoconf list too, for inclusion in AS_SHELL_SANITIZE?
