Follow-up Comment #4, sr #110655 (project autoconf):

That said, the observation that even current shells will choke on `eval` of
shell variables containing long runs of shell code including comments, is
valuable.  That's something we should be avoiding in general and not just in
this case.

(We should be trying to move away from shell variables containing shell code,
period.  That's what shell functions are for.)
