I got the same error with /bin/sh being a symling to dash (0.5.3).

Replacing #! /bin/sh by #!/bin/bash  makes the configure succeed.

I think shortname=${name/lib/} line 2069 is a bashism and breaks the
configure script

This comes from r7313

My shell skills are not so good so no patch at the moment.
