If anyone want to fix this, feel free. But eventually the expander rule handling should be moved out of the build system anyway. Cf. #8494.

This fixes/workaround the issue:

The problem is that the -e switch is not mandated (or even mentioned) by POSIX, so neither /bin/sh nor /bin/echo have to implement it. Apparently your Linux doesn't use bash or another shell that supports the switch as /bin/sh. The GNU coreutils echo command does support -e though, so on all GNU/Linux distributions your work-around would work. It would, however, break a currently correctly working FreeBSD, since that has a /bin/sh with -e support, but a /bin/echo without.

A work-around that should work for you is to set the JAMSHELL environment variable to /bin/bash -c.

This one is probably fixed now. Ingo?

Indeed. The troublesome rule has been removed. Additional expander rules are provided by the respective packages.
