libtool-cross/native: Force usage of bash due to sstate inconsistencies
Scenario: a) libtool script is built on system with bash as /bin/sh b) machine B installs sstate from build a) c) machine B has dash as /bin/sh In this scenario, the script fails to work properly since its expecting /bin/sh to have bash like syntax and it no longer does have it. This patch forces the configure process to use /bin/bash, not /bin/sh and hence allows the scripts to work correctly when used from sstate. Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
