Let's get this straight once and for all. I don't send patches unless
the bug actually is causing me a problem. It's very easy to reproduce
the problem is you have a classical bourne shell (not bash):

$ foo="`echo bar | sed -e "s/-I[^ ]*//g"`"
: cannot execute
]*//g: not found
$ sed: command garbled: s/-I[

and this is exactly the output I used to get from the configure
script. Apart from being uncosmetical, it also meant that CFLAGS
didn't get set properly (which was the actual problem for me).

Unportable shell programming _does_ cause problems, and if it didn't I
wouldn't be bugging you about it.
