At the very least, it would be a good idea to only use "ls -ld" after checking that such usage is valid (i.e. ensure that "ls -ld" actually works, and works as intended on the target platform).
As the possible 'keep executable' feature would be dependent upon by the
package there is no way to make it optional according to the host platform.

What I meant was that if 'ls -ld' behaves "correctly" on the platform on which the configure script is running (the configure script can make this determination), then is would be okay to enable code in the configure script which relies upon ls's behavior.
