[Bill Milford] 
I am having the some problem.  My temporary fix is to either install bash-3.0.16_1 which is the
latest bash package available or you can set CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/sh in your environment.  
The configure scripts will use bash if available and when it re-executes itself, somehow the
command line options do not get passed correctly.  Even the most simple option: ./configure --help
fails.  It was causing the previously reported issues with the apr-db4 port.  It causes problems
for me in the OpenCA configure script.  I suspect that it will affect many ports that use
./configure scripts to pass parameters.  I am going to re build all of my ports when this is
finally resolved.
