It does.  And I doubt there is any bug in libtool configure.

Hi Ralf, Karl,

to the contrary, I am convinced that this is a libtool bug.

The problem is somehow related to our redistributing the libtool.m4 file
(which has the $((...)) stuff) in TeX Live; we aren't installing libtool
itself on the Solaris box.

we distribute ROOT/build-aux/ltmain.sh and ROOT/m4/lt*.m4 and then in, e.g.,
ROOT/texk/web2c/configure.ac use

IMHO this is exactly as it should be done.

On Solaris 5.10 we then have to use CONFIG_SHELL=<good_shell> in order to
avoid the syntax error in the generated libtool script.

I'll have to delve more to figure out exactly what is happening.  I
don't have any reasonable recipe for you to reproduce at this point, ...

I'll try to produce a drastically cut down version of our source tree that
still has this problem.
