So, just to check:
If a user is building on pre-Darwin 6.0 / OS X 10.2, and if they use
--enable-cxx-flags, then they should do what we've been recommending for
Solaris users already:
CONFIG_SHELL=/path/to/bash ..../configure --enable-blabblahblah
I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
