Hello Mikus,

Please keep the mailing list in Cc:, thanks.

(He sent the file off-list.  The respective line is part of the
config.status loop `for ac_f <newline> do ...'.)

This shell construct is perfectly ok.  Such a for loop iterates over all
positional parameters ($1, $2, ..., in short: "$@") and is portable.

For me to be able to analyze the problem, I need to be able to reproduce
it.  That means, I need to see the configure.ac file much rather than
any generated file, and the exact commands (and their outputs) you use
to expose the problem.  Best with a small example, if not possible then
with the original code.  In that case please post a link to download it.
Example: "I have this configure.ac: ... then I run autoconf, then
  ./configure -C
and then this error occurs: ... (cut and pasted output)"
