GNU bash, version 2.05b.0(1)-release (i386-slackware-linux-gnu)

Doing "bash configure" goes into a (presumable the same) loop.

There is a file called "configure.lineno" in the source directory that is
being rewritten over and over and over.  It looks like the "configure"
script with $LINENO replaced by line numbers.
