[sr #110289] "/bin/sh: line 1: ../tests/mktests.sh: not found" with dmak

Follow-up Comment #1, sr #110289 (project autoconf):

The usual fix for this sort of problem is to not use 'cd'. Does that work?
That is, can you replace the offending shell command with:

        $(SHELL) $(srcdir)/tests/mktests.sh \
          `echo " "$(AUTOCONF_FILES) | sed 's, [^ ]*/,

Anyway, as I understand it, this problem should not occur when building with a
distribution tarball because such a tarball already contains an up-to-date
mktests.stamp. So the problem should occur only when building from Git, or
when someone has changed one of mktests.stamp's dependencies and is developing
Autoconf rather than just building it.

If the problem is limited to Solaris dmake and doesn't occur with GNU make,
it's a low-priority bug - we can just tell people to use a GNU-compatible
'make' if they want to develop (as opposed to merely build) Autoconf. This
would be a reasonable approach to take if the abovementioned trivial patch
does not work.
