./configure generated script fails on solaris

Hello maintainers,


Thank you for your efforts to maintains and improve bcurses.

I have an old solaris 10 sparc box where I port many GNU packages.

Trying to compile 6.1 version, if fails on line 1206 probably because a gnu bash extension. #!/bin/sh is NOT bash on solaris


Trying bash ./configure is little bit better but still fails with:


./config.status: syntax error at line 1178: `(' unexpected


I finally changed the shebang to my local copy of bash but is still failed call config.status. I patched this file too and ran ./config.status and it worked this time.


make install fails for the same reason because it uses /bin/sh


This strange! I use many ./configure script and this is the first time I have to patch those two generated files.


Am I missing something?
