Just run configure under bash explicitly

I think a reasonably simple short term solution would be to run configure scripts in bash:
That would avoid crippling dash while making the build systems use the same shell they were using before dash started supporting $LINENO.
Upstream developers using Debian would run
./configure under dash and will fix the bashisms eventually.
