Dodge an ancient ksh bug that breaks configure on some platforms.
8.4.10's configure script suddenly started failing on platforms that use older versions of ksh as /bin/sh. It turns out to be a ksh bug that's triggered by here-document delimiters falling across bufferload boundaries: https://mailman.research.att.com/pipermail/ast-developers/2010q4/000797.html Hopefully this will get fixed before we trip over it again, but to make 8.4.10 releasable, add a comment to move the boundaries to dodge the bug. Per buildfarm members koi and warthog, plus a report from Bjorn Munch of the identical failure on Solaris 10.
