IMHO make 4.x has a too strict definition of white-space.

http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/000095399/basedefs/xbd_chap07.html sayeth:

"In the POSIX locale, at a minimum, the <space>, <form-feed>, <newline>, <carriage-return>, <tab>, and <vertical-tab> shall be included."

Then the make manual is a bit sloppy in the use of "whitespace".
E.g. from the man-page (3.3 Including Other Makefiles):
"Whitespace is required between include and the file names, and between file 

(plus section 5.9 etc. etc.)

So a:
include foo.mak


should work if that definition was true everywhere, but it doesn't.
