Re: strange rebuild configure error on FC5 (tktable)

When trying to rebuild tktable for FE5, I got the following error (from

According to the above, it would seems the following script would fail
on FC5:

case `(ac_space=' '; set | grep ac_space) 2>&1` in
*ac_space=\ *)
echo 0
echo 1

I doubt it (works on FC4, must be something else in configure), but I do
not have an FC5 box to check it...

If you have a little time to spare to help, here are the files:

Thanks! I'll keep looking on my side...

The problem is bash-3.1-6.2, but I don't know exactly what.

Downgrading to bash-3.0-31 from FC4 on an otherwise current Rawhide
fixes the problem.

Changing the first line of configure to "#!/bin/ksh" also fixes the problem.

Commenting out TEA_CONFIG_CFLAGS _and_ TEA_ENABLE_SYMBOLS avoids the problem, but I think TEA_ENABLE_SYMBOLS invokes TEA_CONFIG_CFLAGS so I think the problem
is triggered by something in TEA_CONFIG_CFLAGS.

Thats all the clues I have so far...
