I'm very sorry for the noice; you must have seen this a lot then (though I had 
not been able to find anything on the net, probably because the search terms 
are too general and the results I'm looking for are drowned).

Since I don't want my script to modify the sources...
Is it possible to turn off this particular test, so it will be skipped ?
-I'm thinking something in this direction: supply SKIP_CHECK="lang-bash" for 
make or some --disable-check=bash-lang for configure ?

Otherwise, I *could* of course do a "make check" and then grep the output for 
"FAIL", if there's only one, and it's "lang-bash", then I could proceed, 
otherwise stop the build. ;)

Sadly, I am not able to run any Mac OS X later than 10.5.8, because I am using 
PowerPC based machines.
10.6 and later is intel-only.

Thank you for all this information; it's very helpful. -And thank you for all 
the work you're doing; it's highly appreciated! :)
