I didn't really make much effort at all for the bootstrap script to work on 
brain-damaged shells like Solaris /bin/sh (though, I'll be happy to patch it to 
work there if it doesn't obfuscate or uglify the code), on the assumption that 
anyone planning to bootstrap libtool from git will have a sane development 
environment... I didn't test extensively on vendor shells, but bootstrap seems 
to work correctly on Arch Linux (bash-4.2), Mac OS 10.6 (bash-3.2) and Mac OS 
10.7 (zsh-4.3) -- the environments I developed it in.

Once the thing finally makes it into gnulib, there will be many many more eyes 
on it, and I'm sure any existing niggles with common dev environments will be 
fixed in short order.
