Re: List of packages shipping shell scripts with bashisms + MBF proposal

Libtool is a false positive.  The script /usr/bin/libtool contains some
C program text embedded in a here document.

I should further note that the Libtool version in experimental makes
use of some bashisms as optimization.  These are put in place iff, at
the time the Libtool package is configured, the chosen shell is deemed
capable enough.  This setup can break /usr/bin/libtool, for example, if
/bin/sh is later switched from bash to dash.
