GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 754613
configure doesn't work on systems with a POSIX shell.

gnome-todo doesn't configure on any systems with a POSIX shell, like FreeBSD.
This is due to use of a bashism in the m4/ax_compiler_flags_cflags.m4 file. This issue has been fixed in autoconf-archive upstream . Can this file be updated or maybe better, depend on the version the OS ships?

Is this bug still valid? GNOME To Do doesn't store ax_compiler_flags_cflags.m4 in it's filetree, and copies from the host system's.
I think it is no longer valid now, but gnome-todo release tarballs before 3.18.1 do have this problem.
FreeBSD uses gnome-todo 3.18.1, which has the problem fixed. I think we can close this bug now.
