Hi Fredrik.

Sorry but I'm a ksh/mksh user since some years ago, so I'm not in love with
bash ;-)

My only concern is with a program/library, that using auto*/libtool, relies
on some bashism. That is the reason to be more careful :-)

One could say that bash is the standard shell in Linux, just like for some
people vim is the standard editor.
