Preamble: Not sure if this is related. If you carefully check this log I
see one main difference to successful builds. In all successful builds,
libtool and other utilities are called via /bin/sh, whereas in this log,
libtool is called via /bin/bash and the failing command is
calling /bin/sh. Just a guess: Did the shell changed on this machine
(from /bin/bash to ??) and that's causing thew problem with shift?
Really, this is just a wild guess.
