The gnustep-config script has a line near the end which uses 'eval' to assign
a value to gs_variable_value.

Using the default shell (/bin/sh) on Solaris-10, the shell barfs on this line
... it seems that different shells do things different ways, and the script is
expecting bash behavior from /bin.sh

gs_variable_value=`eval echo $"$gs_variable_name"`

seems to work with the solaris shell, but not with bash
