I guess not, since we only support bash.  However, I did notice another 
problem with the
same file.  "aarch64-linux-gnu" comes out as "aarch64-linux-gnu" instead of
"aarch64-unknown-linux-gnu".  I came up with a simpler version, where I 
"aarch64-" with "arm-", run autoconf-config.sub, then replace "arm-" 
back to "aarch64-".
