The "hplip-3.20.6-python-includes.patch" distributed in hplip-3.20.6-patches-1.tar.xz introduces a Bashism to the configure script that fails when /bin/sh is not Bash:

checking for python3-config... /var/tmp/portage/net-print/hplip-3.20.6-r2/temp/python3.8/bin/python3-config
./configure: 17886: test: X-I/usr/include/python3.8 -I/usr/include/python3.8: unexpected operator
./configure: 17891: test: X -lcrypt -lpthread -ldl  -lutil -lm -lm : unexpected operator
checking whether /usr/bin/python3.8 version is >= 2.2... yes
checking for /usr/bin/python3.8 version... 3.8

The attached patch removes the Bashisms from "hplip-3.20.6-python-includes.patch" and resolves the configure-time errors when /bin/sh is Dash
