That appears to be a bug in autoconf, triggered by the use of make in
config.status.  That may trigger a regeneration of configure which
eventually rewrites config.status in place, while it is still executed
by the shell.  The configure script should probably generate
config.status atomically, or at least remove it prior to writing to it.
