Overview description :
./configure command for Tcl-8.4.11, Tcl-8.4.12, Tk-8.4.11 and Tk-8.4.12 fails if
performed from bash-3.1 (using bash-3.00.16 does not show the error)

Steps to reproduce :
Follow instructions from the BLFS book (changing 8.4.11 to 8.4.12 where needed)
until ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-threads

Result :
Tcl-8.4.11 :
./configure: line 7624: syntax error near unexpected token `)'
./configure: line 7624: `  OSF*)'
Tcl-8.4.12 :
./configure: line 7653: syntax error near unexpected token `)'
./configure: line 7653: `  OSF*)'
Tk-8.4.11 :
./configure: line 5963: syntax error near unexpected token `('
./configure: line 5963: `  case `(ac_space=' '; set | grep ac_space) 2>&1` in'
Tk-8.4.12 :
./configure: line 6067: syntax error near unexpected token `('
./configure: line 6067: `  case `(ac_space=' '; set | grep ac_space) 2>&1` in'

The fix recommanded in LFS/chapter 5 :

cp configure{,.orig} &&
sed "s/relid'/relid/" configure.orig > configure

solves the problem for both Tcl and Tk versions 8.4.11 and 8.4.12
