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. 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 -- Eric Blake eblake@xxxxxxxxxx +1-801-349-2682 Libvirt virtualization library http://libvirt.org -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe dash" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
