I can confirm that this still happens with media-libs/libbs2b-3.1.0-r2 in the configure stage. I suspect it's an upstream bug.

Here's the part of the log where the problem occurs:

configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating libbs2b.pc
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating doc/Makefile
config.status: creating src/Makefile
config.status: creating win32/Makefile
config.status: executing depfiles commands
./config.status: 945: shift: can't shift that many

When the built-in command shift errors out, this halts the whole build.

I was able to get the package to build by prepending CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/bash to the emerge.

The simplest solution is to regenerate the configure file. The attached patch alters the ebuild so as to do exactly that. It also incorporates commit r175 from the upstream repo, so that automake is no longer instructed to utilise dist-lzma, which is no longer provided by >=automake-1.12.

Make this a git-formatted patch and I'll test && apply it.
