The removal of the space should only be neccessary when using punction
marks.  So you can, alternatively, do:

  sprintf(buf, "%s[%2d %s] %s%s%s",
	  GET_LEVEL(tch) >= LVL_IMMORT ? CCYEL(ch, C_SPR) : "",
	  GET_LEVEL(tch), CLASS_ABBR(tch), GET_NAME(tch),
	  *GET_TITLE(tch) && isalpha(*GET_TITLE(tch)) ? " " : "",

Forgive me if it's not terribly correct, I've not played with the stock
do_who() in quite a while.

As for where the code is in 'look', look at the beginning of
act.informative.c, there should be a function which shows characters.
Perhaps look_at_char or show_char_to_char, something like that.  But, once
again, I've not looked at stock lately.
