There are annoying bugs in the 2.54 startup script; sorry!

Because of ancient and hairy UNIXy reasons, this snippet is not
valid:

	`[ -n "$SPOOLDIR"] && echo "-z $SPOOLDIR"` \

whereas this one is:

	`[ -n "$SPOOLDIR" ] && echo "-z $SPOOLDIR"` \

Spot the difference? :-)

Adding a space before the ] on lines 182 and 220 will make the
warning go away.

Regards,

David.
