	No, that is not the reason the script doesn't work. It is
	invoked by the make program, but it is run by the shell, and it
	fails because one of the if...then statements has trailing English
	text on the end of the line, which clearly should be a comment.
	Hence my patch.  I don't know which bit to patch to make the
	libtool create this correctly.

	Maybe, but if someone else has used www then it complains about
	them using the cache, and that it is not available.  You then
	have to say to override this interactively, even when you are
	using the -n option (NONINTERACTIVE) in a script.  If it is
	not going to use the cache, then it should not need to do this.
