Commit 7cd1d7b fixes Automake’s test suite.  If you want to burn CPU
cycles, please test.  :-)

This turned out to be trickier than expected, because ‘autoconf’
generates shell scripts, and it’s the shebang of those scripts that
should be patched to refer to our Bash instead of /bin/sh.

Yet, users who install Autoconf must get the real one, which emits

This commit addresses that by using an ‘autoconf’ wrapper that does the
shebang patching, and is used for the sole purpose of running Automake’s
test suite.
