autogen

May I make some suggestions about the `autogen.sh' script ?

1. The first line is #!/bin/sh but in fact it uses the Korn shell
construction $( ... ). Was the script developed on a system on which the
Korn shell is default ? The first line should be #!/bin/ksh

2. The script uses constructions of the form

        $(which gsometool sometool 2>/dev/null) | head -1

to find what tools are available. On Solaris 8, if a tool be not found,
`which' generates a line of the form

        no gsometool in path1 path2 ....

so it seems that the `search' construction should be

        $(which gsometool sometool 2>/dev/null | grep -v '^no ' | head -1

in order to eliminate the report from `which'.
