The #! line in config.status is _supposed_ to be the value of
CONFIG_SHELL (whether inherited from the environment because you pre-set
it, or because it was the value of the best candidate shell found during
the initial startup of configure where it re-exec's itself into the best
shell found).  config.log may or may not be useful at determining this,
because finding the right candidate shell is very early in the startup.
But a trace of manually running '/path/to/shell -x ./configure' may help
see what was probed (warning, the trace may be huge, so don't go blindly
posting megabytes of stuff to this list).
