Some dialog from #p5p this evening:

(08:09:00 PM) hydahy: Anyone familiar with Porting/ bailing out 
early in Configure with the error "./Configure: 1: ./ Bad 
substitution" ?
(09:10:34 PM) kid51: What is the command you provided for bisection?
(09:17:15 PM) hydahy: Started with: ./Porting/ --target 
t/io/pipe.t --start v5.31.0 -A -Alibpth="/system/lib /vendor/lib"
(09:17:31 PM) hydahy: Error also occurs with ./Porting/ 
--test-build -A -Alibpth="/system/lib /vendor/lib"
(09:21:38 PM) kid51: Remove the first '-A' and start over.
(09:23:14 PM) hydahy: ohhhh, I misunderstood the POD then
(09:23:26 PM) kid51: You're not the first!
(09:23:34 PM) khw: clarifying patches welcome

hydahy is not the first, because I know I have had to pose this question 
at least twice before.

TonyC and other frequent bisectors, please review patch attached.
