The logic in m4/strtoimax.m4 is inverted. The following patch replaces
strtoimax() if and only if it is present and functional.

Thanks for the report. You're right, of course.

I wonder why it fails to link, though. FreeBSD must have another function
(probably strtoll) that bash uses defined in that same source file.
Otherwise, wouldn't static linking skip the libc definition?
