It will solve the problem, but it's not very clean. i'd rather change
#!/bin/sh to #!/bin/bash in ./configure than make a systemwide change
and symlink /bin/bash to /bin/sh ... but one could argue thats'a
purist view. :-)

Well, there's the memory requirements of bash which are
<ahem>significantly</ahem> higher than /bin/sh ... i think (i'm not
100% sure on this one) the S* and K* scripts in /etc/rc?.d run as
/sbin/sh (which is statically linked) and not /bin/sh ...
