I remember reading that glibc really wants bash even though it's not enforced.

You can get make to use whatever shell you want by passing the
variable SHELL. Another way is to set the environment variable
CONFIG_SHELL for autoconf packages. So, there's two ways to do this:

CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/bash ./configure ...


make SHELL=/bin/bash

Do either of those help?
