[FFmpeg-devel] configure script and "toupper()", Solaris vs FreeBSD

i am trying to get Mythtv-SVN to compile on FreeBSD. however, Mythtv
is borrowing it's configure script from ffmpeg. the guys who are
maintaining ffmpeg for FreeBSD have the same problem:
in the configure script there is a function called "toupper". the
current implementation of this function does not work properly on
echo "$@" | tr '[a-z]' '[A-Z]'
implementations that do work on Freebsd:
echo "$@" | tr "[a-z]" "[A-Z]"
echo "$@" | tr [a-z] [A-Z]
echo "$@" | tr [:lower:] [:upper:]
will it be worth the effort to add this to your "List of issues" ? or
should i post a patch to this list?
are there people on this list who can confirm which of these
implementations will work on Solaris and Linux? are there people on
this list who have an opinion on this matter?
any feedback is greatly appreciated.
