Yes! Even with versions where it works, I get a number of errors
reported during configure. So, while it built, I am not sure that it
built "right". I may be lacking optimizations or picking up bugs.
Either the script should be fixed to be fully compatible with sh or
bash should be used. I don't mind if it is dependent on bash for
pre-9.0, but, again, I doubt many systems running multimedia apps lack
the bash port, already, so requiring bash is probably going to impact
few and the impact is pretty minor!
