.. including the conditionals that protect the non-portable stuff.

I have most of my .files in CVS, with common source across all
machines, with some conditional parts. I got burned some time ago by
some weird system (I don't remember what, perhaps a very-early linux)
where sh just wasn't sh, and there was no ksh. Took me ages to realise
that one of the tests wasn't taking the obvious path.
