Description Christian Weisgerber freebsd_committer 2002-06-19 01:40:01 UTC
The configure script of the devel/autoconf port prefers a variety
of third-party shells (e.g. bash) over /bin/sh to run itself.  The
same shell as used for configuration is inserted into the #! path
of the generated "autoconf" script.

In other words, if bash is available on a system when the devel/autoconf
port is built, the installed autoconf script will look like this:

#! /usr/local/bin/bash
# -*- shell-script -*-
# autoconf -- create `configure' using m4 macros

In order to remove this hidden dependency and make the build
deterministic, I suggest to force CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/sh.
