It now occurs to me to ask exactly which version of Autoconf generated
this configure script.

There *should* be code immediately above the
SHELL=${CONFIG_SHELL-/bin/sh} line that *should* have detected that
/usr/xpg4/bin/sh is the right shell to use on this system.  It's
possible that its tests are not stringent enough.  Do you see a
variable named "as_required" being set in your logs, before this
point?  If so, please tell us what it's being set to.  If not, please
tell us it's not there.
