Ok that means that whatever as_echo expands to either doesn't
work on netbsd, or never works.
The thing to do is work out what happens at the top on the
script when that is generated - and make sure a sane 'echo'
is used.

NFI why the config script keeps using:
        foo=`echo bar baz`
instead of:
        foo="bar baz"
apart from making it slow and broken:-)
