Is the LINENO code being triggered for you?  That is, are the scripts
creating a file configure.lineno and executing that file?  If so,
can you capture these two configure.lineno files and post them? uses ${SHELL-/bin/sh} to run configure.lineno, whereas
config.broke uses $CONFIG_SHELL.  Do these evaluate to different
shells?  If so, that might explain the problem.  Perhaps CONFIG_SHELL
is buggy.


I assume that you inserted the "echo here..." lines after running
"autoconf".  Did you insert any other lines?
