Several people have mentioned that they have had to go through some 
contortions to configure gcc due to a bug in the NetBSD shell because
the status variable ($?) was not being set to 0 after a successfull
variable assignment as is required by POSIX.2.

I've just checked in a change that should fix it, and have submitted some 
bug reports of the other deficencies I've noticed with the shell to GNATS.
