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.

Hi Ralf, Karl,

looking more closely at some mail from April, I see:

/bin/sh ../libtool --tag=CC --mode=link gcc ...
../libtool: syntax error at line 653: `func_arith_result=$' unexpected

It seems that libtool.m4 doesn't cause libtool to use a "good shell"
unless that good shell is inherited from configure via CONFIG_SHELL.
