The ':' makes it work for me (a shorthand expression I picked up by reading

Does it not work on your shell?  (I thought I'd learned something good ;-)

The last time I touched that was in dev.7 (the ':' predates that)

* change $host_os special case for 'os390' to 'openedition' in,
  make corresponding changes for config.guess and config.sub -PG
