The operating system is irrelevant. It is not correct syntax. (If anyone 
knows of any sh builtin test or standalone test(1) that allows a space in 
the first string of the expression without being quoted, please let me 
know. Normally (always?) you would get "too many arguments" or "unexpected 
operator" or other error.)

I also agree that the test is probably not needed.

I don't know this code. I just happened to be building the release when I 
noticed it. So I reported it.

Feel free to complain about error reports, but note that zero feedback is 
probably worse.
