Solaris 10 does have standards complaint shells. The problem is finding them. :-7 Check out 'man standards' or this link: http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/816-5175/6mbba7f3v?a=view In the utilities section it discusses which shells exist on the system, and which standards they support.

I found I had the best luck with /bin/xpg4/sh for configure.

I've seen various /bin/sh (and ksh) versions that will accept the `....` form
but not the $(...) form.  It's bitten me a few times too.
