You should figure out why *this* is happening and fix it.  Solaris 10
/bin/sh is *extremely* old (behavior frozen circa 1992 - yes,
seriously) and it is likely that the problem you've noticed is only
the tip of the iceberg.

config.status on Solaris 10 should be generated with #!
/usr/xpg4/bin/sh and should also set the PATH to prioritize
/usr/xpg4/bin over {/usr,}/bin.
