Thanks!  Debian has been using something like this (but unconditional)
to convince autoconf not to use dash as CONFIG_SHELL, to work around
bugs in various configure scripts[1].  I imagine other users might
want the same thing, so a patch like this seems like a good idea.

If you don't mind me asking, if you want configure scripts to run from
bash, why not simply run configure scripts from bash, instead of running
them from sh and trusting that sh will call bash if it is really some
other shell?

And remember, most configure scripts already support that:

CONFIG_SHELL=path/to/bash path/to/bash ./configure
