Thanks for the bug report.  configure should actually be creating a
libtool script with the portable code instead of the faster XSI
implementation if it determines the shell to not be XSI compliant.
Can you please show how you invoked configure, the configure output,
and output of './libtool --config'?  Do you have CONFIG_SHELL, SHELL
in your environment, and if yes, what do they contain?
