Are you using libtool 2.2.6 or are you using an antique version? Libtool versions prior to 2.2 were indeed very slow.

By default it produces shell snippets with "/bin/bash".

Current libtool still uses the shell that Autoconf chooses for it. However, if you have a faster shell which actually works (e.g. dash) you can specify it via the CONFIG_SHELL environment variable prior to running the configure script.

I tried this in is this the good way ?

export SHELL=/bin/sh

That would be a bad way since perhaps '/bin/sh' is not capable of running the configure script at all.
