Description

autogen.sh does not run properly under the borne shell (/bin/sh).

It should either be set to use /usr/bin/bash, or rewritten to operate correctly in the borne shell. (In linux this will not manifest, as most linux distros link /bin/sh to /usr/bin/bash, but does manifest on some UNIXes (such as Solaris))

autogen.sh is a 14 line script (including comments) and tests fine with http://heirloom.sourceforge.net/sh.html

If the syntax is not portable to your system, please provide more details, including the error output.
