The number of bugs of autoconf'ed configure scripts on OS/2 rapidly
going down, it makes sense to fix the remaining problems one by one in
the autoconf sources.  [Usually I just run my convert_configure script
which finds the bugs and fixes them "alive" in the configure script.]

The fix below is for a kinda cosmetic bug: configure scripts assume
that /bin/sh is present, thus won't work; this may be fixed by setting
CONFIG_SHELL=sh.  The chunk below is modelled by the
_AS_LINENO_PREPARE, but fixes a bug in _AS_LINENO_PREPARE.  It sets
CONFIG_SHELL automatically if needed.

  [The bug in _AS_LINENO_PREPARE is that pdksh sets $LINENO to 0 for what
  is given as -c-argument; thus the test in _AS_LINENO_PREPARE will
  not detect sh if it is actually pdksh.  I fix it in the chunk below
  (but not in _AS_LINENO_PREPARE chunk!) by writing the test script to
  conf$$.sh - instead of giving it as -c argument.]

I do not know how to patch autoconf source, so the patch below is
against configure (of autoconf itself).  Probably one can append it to
