Thanks for your report.  Can you please provide more details?

What system are you running on?  What shells does it have installed,
including version numbers?  What was the exact error message that was
printed for you?  What version of autoconf generated the configure
script that printed the message (look at the first three lines of

Older versions of zsh did indeed have a bug that prevented them being
usable for running configure scripts, but newer zsh has fixed that, and
we have been operating under the assumption that most platforms have at
least another shell that is more likely to work even if it has the
broken zsh.  Yours is the first report of this particular error message
in several years, so I'm trying to figure out what makes your system so
unique as to not have a decent shell available (at least, that configure
could find).  It really may be easier for you to install a newer shell
than to try and get autoconf patched to work around your situation,
since patching autoconf doesn't automatically fix all the released
packages made with older autoconf that still choke in your situation.
