It seems that the DJGPP port of bash hash a bug in its 'set -e';
autoheader uses

if (set -e && . >/dev/null 2>&1; then
  echo failed

But on the DJGPP port, bash exits completely due to the set -e (instead
of just the subshell exiting).
I've reported this to the DJGPP maintainer of bash.

Note that I think you shouldn't redirect the first run; this masks any
useful error messages sourcing might produce.
