           Summary: syntax error in 'configure' under Solaris 8
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.0.2p1
          Platform: Sparc
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Build system
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: brian at bluecoat93.org

Unable to run even 'configure --help' on Solaris 8:

bash-2.04# pwd

bash-2.04# uname -a
SunOS hardcase 5.8 Generic_108528-03 sun4u sparc

bash-2.04# ./configure
./configure: syntax error at line 53: `else' unexpected

Explicitly running configure under bash gets a bit farther, but still fails:

bash-2.04# bash ./configure

checking for C compiler default output... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes

checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
configure: error: cannot run /bin/sh ./config.sub
