This will not work because the shellscripts have an explicit shebang
and are called as executables.

Indeed. I see two solutions:
- use a wrapper like „runtest“ which executes the shellscripts with something 
  which avoids the shebang.
- use autoconf with the scripts renamed to <script>.in and use @SHELL@
