I've taken a look at the ./configure script, and as near as I can tell,
the only thing that would cause that error is an error in the substitution
command for the $SHELL variable. What is your setting of $SHELL when you
run ./configure? Which distribution of Linux are you running, and what
is your sed version? (For an rpm-based distribution, you can find out
the sed version with "rpm -qf `which sed`".) Could you send or post your
config.status file? It might provide a clue as to what the problem is.
