 Now the question is... how did it get there? Do any of the other
 variables in that block of ./libtool contain stray newlines?
 On line ~685 of config.status (after configure runs) there should be a
 big for loop over a pile of variables, one of which is ranlib, and
 where the body does 
     case `eval \\$ECHO "X\\$$var"` of
       eval "lt_$var=\\\"\$$var\\\""
 Does that have a stray newline in it? And if not (hopefully not), does
 the setting of RANLIB earlier in config.status (line ~595) have a
 stray newline?
 If that one does it's getting introduced somehow in the probing
 logic... I think... but whoever wrote this code needs to be locked up
 for the good of humanity...
