The underlying issue here is that on new(ish) Debian systems /bin/sh
is a link to /bin/dash, not /bin/bash as it used to be, but the
autotools somehow fail to recognize that sometimes and do not remove
bashisms from the generated scripts.

Doing a
$ export CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/bash
before retooling usually helps.

Yes, it's me, the long lost Debian packages maintainer!
I'm finally working on getting current sawfish back in shape for the
distro, starting by actually using current sawfish in my own
system. Expect news :-)
