Not exactly. For instance, I can't execute a config.guess script with
dash because it barfs whenever the : (do nothing) command comes up.
So, can you unpack binutils-2.16.1 and run ./config.guess or dash
./config.guess? Later, when config.status is created, it breaks on the
same thing, but it's more serious because the sed substituion on doesn't work.
