   FWIW, I'm not totally sure this is exactly the bug that Sam reported.
   (The line may be longer or shorter on Solaris; there, /usr/xpg4/bin/grep
   is documented to have a limit of LINE_MAX = 2.48 bytes (Solaris 2.6);
   the config.status lines are slightly shorter than the Makefile ones,
   so it may be possible he saw the latter issue trigger but not the
   What do you think?

BTW I use gnu grep 2.5.1 on solaris (first in my path), and configure
seems to pick that as well. Also GNU sed version 4.1.4, GNU Make 3.81.
/bin/sh is the system default. Perhaps configure really requires bash?
Apparently not, as modifying the top of configure to use bash doesn't
help, and even setenv SHELL bash doesn't help.
