Strangely enough, I don't, or at least not directly.
I just think it's a waste of effort. None of those files actually gets
installed anywhere (except the two in Functions/Misc, and they really
are meant to be shell functions and shouldn't have a #! line at all,
nor should "reporter" for that matter). If they *were* installed, I'd
recommend fixing the #! as part of the installation process; but they
aren't, so there's no reason to have a separate (and nonfunctional)
"source" file as well as a "compiled" one.
So I'm willing to bend a little and provide a way for you to fix them
up if you want to install them yourself, but I don't want more clutter
in the source tree and the configure script if we aren't going to make
installing them a part of the regular build process.
Even if there were separate source and compiled files, I still wouldn't
want to do it with configure. A "make"-time transformation with a little
script like the one I supplied would be sufficient.
(Looking back at your original message, I'm curious how Util/helpfiles
manages to appear twice with two different #! lines.)
