./configure -C creates config.cache it can't use

On IRIX 6.5, I bootstrap with:

libtoolize --force --copy \
&& aclocal \
&& autoheader \
&& automake --foreign --add-missing --copy \
&& autoconf

and then run:

./configure -C

If I run configure again, it says:

bash-2.05$ ./configure -C
configure: loading cache config.cache
./configure[1290]: syntax error at line 76 : `(' unexpected

It seems that configure is changing the line below from aclocal.m4
(included from libtool.m4):

lt_cv_global_symbol_to_c_name_address="sed -n -e 's/^: \([[^ ]]*\) $/
{\\\"\1\\\", (lt_ptr) 0},/p' -e 's/^$symcode \([[^ ]]*\) \([[^ ]]*\)$/
{\"\2\", (lt_ptr) \&\2},/p'"

into the following in config.cache:

test "${lt_cv_global_symbol_to_c_name_address+set}" = set ||
lt_cv_global_symbol_to_c_name_address='sed -n -e '\''s/^\'^: \([^\'^ *\)
$/  {\"\1\", (lt_ptr) 0},/p'\'' -e '\''s/^\'^[BCDEGRST] \([^\'^ ]*\)
\([^\'^ ]*\)$/  {"\2", (lt_ptr) \&\2},/p'\'

(Line wrapping in both of the above lines done by Mozilla.)

I think the requoting/escaping of quote characters is broken.  Sh on
Linux doesn't seem to care, or at least, it ignores the problem
silently.  But IRIX sh barfs, as you can see above.

I'm using:

autoconf 2.53
automake 1.6
libtool 1.4.2

Any ideas how to fix this?
