This is not a regression then, right?  In Autoconf 2.59 that variable
has 7368 bytes, so you ought to have the same bug with 2.59.

That being said, which version of OpenServer are you using?  What
shells does it have?  Are there any other shells besides that buggy

says that as of OpenServer 5.0.7 Maintenance Pack 3, OpenServer has
'bash'.  And <http://www.sco.com/support/update/download/> implies
that 5.0.7 is the oldest version of OpenServer that SCO still
supports.  So it sounds like all you should have to do to work around
the problem is install an SCO-supplied Bash, set CONFIG_SHELL to bash,
and you'll be off to the races.

I suppose we could work around the problem by preferring bash to sh in
our list of shells to try.  But we probably should wait until after
2.60 is out before trying something like that.

Thanks for checking it.
