the move of CONFIG_SHELL to the environment of `configure' wasn't done.
In we
concluded it to be necessary though.  One instance of this was missed.

        in environment of `configure', not the command line.

-Here is a another example:
+Because the value of @var{CONFIG_SHELL} may be needed before the argument
