Thanks! I can confirm it's fixed (tested on AIX with its default ksh shell)

I just found out that it's possible to test for bashisms on Linux as
well, not with the 'ksh' shell from 'pdksh' - this one isn't truly ksh
compatible, but many modern Linux distros now come with /bin/dash
(it's even the default sh on Debian), and that one will do:

$ dash ./configure
./configure: 82: ./configure: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
(the above was of course before the last commit)
