This isn't a direct reply (as others have already answered), but just
FYI, GNU software is recommended to only use the following utilities
in makefiles (and hence configure / AutoConf / AutoTools):

http://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/Utilities-in-Makefiles.html#Utilities-in-Makefiles

awk cat cmp cp diff echo egrep expr false grep install-info ln ls
mkdir mv printf pwd rm rmdir sed sleep sort tar test touch tr true

Of course they aren't always that strict (and it's admittedly hard to
keep track), but still, it's good to know what is considered an
acceptable minimum, at least in theory.
