This is starting to stray from NetBSD fodder, but under Solaris 2.5 the
script is actually thus:
#ident "@(#)alias.sh 1.1 95/02/06 SMI"
# Copyright (c) 1995 by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
(Which has 17 hard links to the names of other builtins.)
No need for the bug report. :-)

too mad at this minor infraction!
