Oh dear.  This should be
  CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/ash lt_ECHO='printf %s\n' /bin/ash configure [...]

(While we're at it, I found another mostly harmless bug in libtool
exposed by ash which makes a couple of testsuite tests fail.  Patch
at eleven on the libtool-patches list.)

bash over /bin/sh.  It does so on other systems.
