bash-2.05 breaks autoconf-2.50


From: Adam J. Richter
Subject: bash-2.05 breaks autoconf-2.50
Date: Sat, 2 Jun 2001 15:38:50 -0700

        autoconf-2.50 needs to be able to do the shell command
"source /dev/null" (autoconf-2.50/acgeneral.m4, does "cache_file=/dev/null"
and elsewhere defines AC_CACHE_LOAD to source $cache_file, which ltconfig
also does).  Strangely, bash is apparently crippled to prevent this.  Here
is a patch removing the crippling code.  Is there some posix standard that
forbids "source /dev/null"?
