./configure --help
./configure: syntax error at line 1622: `CAPI_VERSION_MAJOR=$' unexpected

configure seems to work as expected.

I found that this problem also applies to version 2.2.3, but in 2.2.3 there was also another line with the same syntax that had to be fixed

$var-$val would result in the "4-3" string with a bourne shell. Can you find another syntax for arithmetics ?
Could you try $((4-3)) just to test ?

I do not know the portable way to do arithetic in shell programming, but I have seen expr mentioned, so perhaps the following is more portable:
