    Bug 790261 - autogen.sh non-portable use of echo -n. · d6c72d0f
    Jehan authored
    The reporter notes in particular that the -n option does not work
    appropriately on recent versions of macOS.
    From what I know, echo without any option is the most portable. But when
    options are needed, there are too many variants of the command out
    there, and printf becomes more reliable and consistent across platforms.
    It is more recent than echo and therefore non-portable for very very old
    platforms, but let's assume/hope that it old-enough for not being a
    problem anymore.
