Actually it is... :)  See here:

   sed -n "/.*Configured with/s/[^:]*: //p" $@ | sh

and relate it to your error message:

   config-host.mak is out-of-date, running configure
   sh: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
   make: *** [config-host.mak] Error 2

Your argument is using '', so it conflicts with configure's own use of
'' to quote the arguments.

Yeah, what I'm missing now is why your patch works.

It doesn't need to handle it, because it is not a special character
within quotes.
