Are you really sure you're talking exactly about 0x09 bytes?
Those are tabs, aren't they?  If they are (and my hexdump tools seem
to believe that too), then I count four, not five of them, and all
of those four are at the right places - just at the beginning of
a rule after a target specification.  That's how Makefiles are made,
isn't it now? :)

If you're talking about something other than tabs, then please clarify,
because I cannot find anything other than printable characters, tabs,
and 0x0A newlines in src/Makefile.am.
