They shouldn't.  Autoconf requires a bourne-shell-like shell, but it
goes to great lengths to generate shell code that's compatible with
even the most horrid buggy joke shells out there that call themselves
`/bin/sh' (though as you might expect, this sort of thing bit-rots
fairly quickly).

[of course your main point still holds -- `msh' isn't going to work...]
