Just some notes:
- syswin.inc code looks like any number of delimiters between parameters are skipped.
- this extra whitespace is added by the makefile, suggesting some buggy/incorrect processing in 
make.exe or makefile itself.
- the extra character may be not a whitespace (#32), but something looking like one (e.g. 
non-breaking space with code #160)
