You are posting this under "EMX on DOS". EMX is not
I did a general Posix one for any unspecified Posix system,
which doesn't necessarily have a shell.
The Cygwin I submitted was the last thing, and only a minor
change to the general Posix one, to allow backslash.
As a separate issue, yes, I have BASH. But when I run
configure under Bash, it hangs my computer, and I need to
cold boot. I don't know why. But I never said my computer
had the ability to run shell scripts. What I said is that I have
a Posix programming environment, and that I can compile
Posix code. I can and do compile Posix code. Just as I
compile and run C89 code. THAT works.
Other people may have only a partial install of Cygwin
that doesn't have bash, or they may have a completely
different Posix system, or may have downloaded a
different gcc port that doesn't come with Bash. Or maybe
like me they can't run it for some other reason. I don't
But if they can provide a Posix environment, then Posix
