I've been holding my tongue because I must have missed something obvious, but
/bin/csh on NetBSD 1.6 i386 without any updates appears to have "which"
builtin. The man page thinks so (and so does the -current page via
man.NetBSD.org), and "which which" does too.
If that's the case, shouldn't the script version sleep with the fishes?
