Please review this followup fix for the vardeps patch (JDK-8069261). It
seems that in Cygwin, when running gnu make 3.82, whitespace isn't
stripped in the exact same way as on other versions of gnumake that I
have tested (4.0 on all platforms, 3.81 on linux). The fix to this
problem was to change the string equals macro that I created and strip
the arguments in that.
Added a test that reproduces the problem.
