I actually wish I still had my old "run shell script" thing. I had
some very preliminary patches that actually worked for simple things,
and you could do something like

config SOME_NAME
bool
option shell "true"

and it would act basically like "option env", except it didn't do
"getenv()", it did "system()" and checked the return value. So the
above would make SOME_NAME have the value 'y', because when you
executed "true" it was successful. I have this dim memory of allowing
it to set strings too (filling in the default value with the stdout
output from the shell execution).

So I had some experimental patch like that, and it kind of worked, but
I never finished it.

But the reason I never completed it was that for the compiler option
case, it really wanted more than a shell command, it needed to get the
whole $(CC) etc from the make environment.

I don't remember the exact syntax I used, but I think it was based on
that "option env" syntax, just replacing "env" with "shell". But
searching my mail archives I can't find anything, so I may never have
sent anything out. And so the patch is long gone.

Maybe I'll get frustrated enough and try to recreate it. I don't think
the patch was that big (but as mentioned, it really wasn't in a form
where it was _useful_ yet).
