While building the software on Gentoo with a custom lint, I detected abnormal code in the generated configure script. It comes from the following line:

if test "x$HAVE_LIBTHAI" == "xyes"; then

The warning:

./configure: 22449: test: xno: unexpected operator

The double equals is a bashism, and a poor one at that as it exists solely to be confusing and accomplish nothing. Remove it from the POSIX sh configure script via the attached patch.
