OK to apply?

a quick answer: why is it necessary to have this?

It seems that the problem could be fixed by inspecting the arguments
before the echo tests, so that CONFIG_SHELL is set correctly.

But I guess that there must be better solution:
1) cannot libtool use something like AS_DETECT_SUGGESTED if it is
going to exec configure under a "better shell"?
2) or if the main purpose is to find out a good shell for the libtool
scripts, perhaps the tests could be performed later...

On a slightly related note - the libtool configure script uses AC_CONFIG_SUBDIRS to invoke the libltdl configure script. It seems to me the subdir script ought to be invoked with --no-reexec since the top level script has already gone to the trouble of selecting the best shell.
