Whatever happened to the old tried-but-true:

    i=`expr $i + 1`

Running an external process may be slower, but you don't need to run
./configure all that often unless you're developing Zope itself (and
even then, not all *that* often).  I suspect using expr is more
portable to the whole family of sh-derived shells than any of the more
new-fangled ways.

Sheesh, who ever imagined I'd be the curmudgeon?
