[r17720] Bug #548218: Unify command substitution shell pattern

The command substiturion by $(expression) causes configure error on solaris.
Command substitution via $() is even part of
, which I regard as POSIX definition of a shell, i.e. the absolute minimum I
think a shell should be able to do. From that document, backticks are
"just as standarized" as the $() form. In that sense, this patch is simply
unifying the command substitution pattern in our scripts.

Patch by Halton Huo.
