Doing that would be a lot of work.  I am not opposed to it, but I am
not going to do it.

My suggestion is a very small change which instantly makes configure
much easier to debug, at least if you have bash available (and the bug
you are fixing doesn't go away with bash).

Please don't let the best be the enemy of an improvement.  If
configure is ever improved (without being simply replaced), the
logging code can easily be removed.
