[PATCH] Remove Bashism in configure.ac

[PATCH] Remove Bashism in configure.ac

(1) By Matt Whitlock (mwhitlock) on 2020-07-07 06:18:31 [source]

On systems where /bin/sh is a POSIX-compliant shell (such as Dash without the hobbling of $LINENO that some distros inflict on it), Autoconf will use /bin/sh as its configure script interpreter. Bashisms in configure.ac thus lead to shell errors at runtime. The most common such Bashism is the use of the == operator with the test built-in.

SQLite's configure.ac has one such occurrence of the == operator, which causes Dash to emit errors of the form:

./configure: 12664: test: unexpected operator

Please apply this patch to eliminate the Bashism:
