That'll teach me to ever do fatal errors based on shell correctness
assumptions again.  :(

Could you as well please: run the script I sent in another message in
this thread and report the exact ksh version this is on, so we can
mention it in the Autoconf portability section?

Just to see whether I have missed any other occurrences: Does libtool
compile and work with the patch below (except maybe a lot of extraneous

And for possible workarounds:  Does Tru64 ship another shell suitable
for use as CONFIG_SHELL?  Please try with
  CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/foosh /bin/foosh path/to/libtool/configure [OPTIONS]

I believe it might be the best to just completely back out the other
patch again (as well as the one below).  :(
