The attached patch (by Ryan Hill) fixes two minor issues that cause
problems when using a non-bash shell as /bin/sh (or when forcing
configure through such a shell). It replaces them with more portable
equivalents. This is unchanged between 0.143 and master.
The errors dash reported were:
./configure: 5467: Bad substitution
and after fixing that:
./configure: 5498: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
both of which cause the script to abort.
Is this something you can include in the next release?
The file does not show up on the archives. I'm hoping I simply managed
to forget to attach it, so re-sending.
