spurious echo causes extra mail when running from cron

Bug Description

Binary package hint: chkrootkit

Using chkrootkit 0.49-3.1, if I run it with both an exclude and -q I get a spurious new line, which causes cron to complain. I traced this down to an echo statement, that I think belongs inside the if QUIET block. I've attached my patch to that effect.

Poking around, I also see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=548582 which took a different approach. In some ways it's cleaner, but when I try that patch it gets some of the logic wrong., and outputs weirdly. So I like mine more.
