OK, thanks for pointing this out. I shouldn't have said that the problem was

The original configure script worked when I ran it on Linux Mint + bash, and didn't
work on Alpine Linux + BusyBox ash. I didn't notice echo() in the configure script,
did some experimentation with bash's echo and ash's, found a difference which seemed
to explain the observed problem, and worked around it.

Now it looks like the issue was something else. I can't seem to duplicate the problem
