What bugs me is that after spending a horrendous amout of time trying
to figure out how to include a space within a pattern, finally coming
up with the above as "good enough", I looked at the generated libtool
and they have the answer:

    *" blah "* )

I must have tried every single option *except* that one.  Now I have to
fix it anyway because that regex will match the date inside the version
string instead of what I intended.
