bash-2.05a: build problem on Compaq/DEC OSF/1 5.0

Subject: bash-2.05a: build problem on Compaq/DEC OSF/1 5.0
Date: Fri, 23 Nov 2001 09:59:17 -0700 (MST)

The build of bash-2.05a on Compaq/DEC OSF/1 5.0 successfully 
created an executable which reports:

% ./bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.05a.0(2)-release (alphaev6-dec-osf(rev.)
Copyright 2001 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

Notice the unbalanced parentheses.  This may be the source
of this build error:

make -i

/bin/sh: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected
make: [bashbug] Error 2 (ignored)

since "make -n" shows a complex sed command being executed in the
failing step.
