See http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16659294/different-output-in-makefile-rule

In the following Makefile

  • there is only one TAB, at the beginning of line 4 (the first

`call f')

  • no blanks at the end of the lines
  • > 8 blanks in line 5 (12 in the example, no problem if <= 8)

The output is

The two calls are identical (except for the initial TAB). Why the output are different ?
