  1. make check_white_space fix for leap-seconds.list

    * Makefile (check_white_space): Allow trailing white space in
    leap-seconds.list.  This file is maintained by NIST, and the
    current version has trailing white space, and has a checksum
    making it inadvisable for us to remove the trailing white space in
    our copy.  Also, coalesce two 'grep' calls into one, and check for
    weird white space characters anywhere, not just before line end.

    tzselect: Removed spaces in calls to awk-functions

    Wuodan authored committed
    GNU awk fails when a user-defined-functions is called with a space like in
    'myUDF ()'. It does not fail when calling builtin functions, but removed
    those spaces too.
    Example code:
    good_awk='function echo(x) { return x; } BEGIN { print echo("x"); }'
    bad_awk_='function echo(x) { return x; } BEGIN { print echo ("x"); }'
    sin_awk='BEGIN { print sin (0) }'
    mawk -W version 2>/dev/null | head -n1
    mawk "${sin_awk}"
    mawk "${good_awk}"
    mawk "${bad_awk_}"
    gawk -V | head -n1
    gawk "${sin_awk}"
    gawk "${good_awk}"
    gawk "${bad_awk_}"
    mawk 1.3.4 20141027
    GNU Awk 4.0.2

    tzselect: Fix for gawk treating '\.' as plain '.'

    Wuodan authored committed
    When using gawk and Posix TZ in tzselect, this warning is shown:
    	awk: cmd. line:1: warning: escape sequence `\.' treated as plain `.'
    gawk treats '\.' as '.'
    mawk treats '\.' as '\.'
    both treat '\\.' as '\\.'
    The 2nd and 3rd are corrrect for 'Mm.w.d'.
    gawk 'BEGIN{ date = "\."; print date }'
    gawk 'BEGIN{ date = "\\."; print date }'
    mawk 'BEGIN{ date = "\."; print date }'
    mawk 'BEGIN{ date = "\\."; print date }'
    * tzselect.ksh (date): Fix bug that broke POSIX TZ checking with gawk.
