I know this is how it is supposed to work, but CONFIG_SHELL actually 
seems to cause problems on my system.
I am using Ubuntu 9.04 where /bin/sh points to dash and SHELL=/bin/bash. 
When CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/bash then autoconf configure fails on my system 
with the error "configure: error: no acceptable m4 could be found in 
$PATH.". When CONFIG_SHELL is not set, or configure is explicitly called 
with bash then this problem goes away!

I don't experience this issue when building any of the other packages in 
crosstool-ng. :(

I have attached a text file with output from my shell with an example of 
what happens.
