Except that it will only work if /bin/sh happens to be bash, which
makes it unacceptable.

IMO, the right approach is to use the detected value of JIKES in
configure.in to enable or disable the use of jikes.  But I don't see
why this would be useful at all: you could always create your own
alias or link for javac -> jikes...
