Subject: Bug#583000: bashism in configure script makes build to fail
From: Santiago Vila
Date: Tue, 25 May 2010 13:15:49 +0200 CEST

I received this report from the Debian bug system.

It seems the root of the problem is a bashism in the configure script.
Patch follows.

BTW: Adding the letter "x" reminds me of MS-DOS .BAT programming,
where such trick was necessary. Should "$with_termcap" = "auto" not
work well enough, even if $with_termcap is empty?
