I'm using Autoconf 2.57 to generate a script which uses a test which involves precise comparision of objdump output against a known base. Unfortunately, the known output contains trailing spaces, which seem to get stripped when autom4te runs on it. Well, I consulted the info pages and it suggested quotation as the answer, so I popped a set of [] around the trailing spaces. When generating the configure script, autom4te removes the quotes (expected), but it still strips the quoted whitespace (unexpected). What is the proper way to quote trailing whitespace in autoconf templates?
