[Fontinst] avoiding spaces in fd files

This is not a big deal but I wondered if there is a way of avoiding the
problem. If I use the following command:
\installfamily{T1}{xyz}{\hyphenchar\font=\m at ne}
fontinst introduces spaces into the fd files. That is, it will write
something like:
\DeclareFontFamily{T1}{clmd}{\hyphenchar \font = 45}
rather than:
This is bad because pdfTeX, at least, does not like the spaces so the
files have to be hand-edited (or sed-edited, at least) afterwards.

Is this a known problem? Is there a good way around it?
