Your libtool itself has a magic number pointing to bash, necessary

you contradict that with (only works if your sh is a bash):

LIBTOOL=$(SHELL) $(top_builddir)/libtool
rep_LIBTOOL=$(SHELL) $(top_builddir)/libtool
This happens if configure is executed by bash, and /bin/sh is not bash.
If configure is executed by (for example) dash, a dash-compatible
libtool script will be written.

That said, you're probably right, the $(SHELL) should be removed in
LIBTOOL and rep_LIBTOOL, but it was added by libtool.m4 (part of libtool
itself), not anything in librep, so needs to be fixed there.

Having correctly unpacked librep, configure was executable, so I just called it as a command. I know it often says to run "sh configure", but if that is required, it should not be executable. OTOH that would be uncomfortable, better to write a makefile that is consistent with the rest.
