Bash Version: 3.2
Patch Level: 25
Release Status: release

Description: Attempting to run 'configure', or any shell script with #! /bin/sh, results in the error message:

    "bash: ./configure: /usr/bin/bash: bad interpreter: Permission denied"

This is generally due to the file permission bits on a program -- in
this case /usr/bin/bash -- denying execute access.  You might also
investigate whether or not /bin/bash is supposed to be symlinked to
/usr/bin/bash, which appears to be the case here.
