After this line and before the next echo statement in the configure
script there are some while loops.  Perhaps those are a problem.  Here
is one of them:

 while :;do case "$tmpdir" in *\$*) __ac_tmp__='s/[\`"-"]/\\&/g'
eval "tmpdir=`sed ${__ac_tmp__} <<EOF
`";; *) break ;; esac; done

Do you perhaps know if such a construct is supported by your shell?
(Frankly I am not an expert here.)  Also, is sed installed?
