Right. Normally, that would be /bin/sh, except autoconf-based configure
scripts will, when called from a shell lacking certain features,
re-execute themselves using bash or some other shell.

In practise, if /bin/sh points to a version of dash that lacks LINENO
support, and bash is available, configure will restart using bash. This
is generally desirable behaviour.

Thanks. Older versions of libtool.m4 wrote the configure interpreter
path into the Makefile, so you will only see this problem with packages
that recently updated their libtool.m4.

Huh. You're right. I believe it is actually supposed to work like that
already, but since it doesn't, you may also add -I/opt/sawfish/include
to your CFLAGS. I've tested this locally, after renaming
my /usr/include/rep/rep.h, and the build and install completes
