I started looking into it. For me this is the first time I've come
across git bundles and I must say that for contributions like this I
find the format-patch/send-email approach which is documented in our
README *much* preferrable. Could you please follow that in the future?

Anyway, about the first commit. I looked into what make produces off
the modified Makefile, but it did not add any whitespace to any "#
Files" or "# Not a target" lines, but I do see more than one space in
the "# File is an intermediate prerequisite" line. Could you clarify
what the two first modifications are for, i.e. do you have a case
where make produces output that would require these adjustments?

The variable patch seems innocent enough, I've applied it.

That's as far as I got for now.
