Update of sr #110656 (project autoconf):

                  Status:                    None => Wont Do                
             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed                 


Follow-up Comment #2:

For this one I think we'll also suggest getting a working shell. The 3b1 is a
museum piece and it's not reasonable to expect Autoconf to make nontrivial
changes to run on a 35-year-old operating system.

> configure prints out "positional parameters were not saved." early on the
the configure process, so it seems to notice the problem, but then fails to
act on it

This is part of its attempt to find a working shell. If you provide one it
should work. If not, I expect it goes ahead anyway (and obviously fails).
