Before you put too much effort into patching the incumbent bootstrap script,
please take a look at my complete rewrite.  I'm short on time to finish
writing matching bootstrap.conf's for bison and tar before officially
submitting it, and may need to tweak it a little more if anyone gives me
feedback, or if writing the bison and tar confs brings anything to light.

There is a huge docu-comment string at the start of the attached file
that explains how it works, which more properly belongs somewhere in the
texi documents.  Also, the list archive contains a series of existing
conf files that I have already written.

I'd be very happy for you to try it out, and let me know of your successes
and issues in advance of my resubmitting (along with missing bootstrap.confs
for as many users of the incumbent bootstrap as I can find) in 2 or 3 weeks
