Even beyond the installation into /usr during build, using bash
isn't a good thing. Bash isn't part of the NetBSD core, so shouldn't
by anything in the main source tree.
I was unhappy enough to determine that netpbm (in pkgsrc) now
:-( I don't want to have to install one more pkgsrc shell just
because one pkgsrc
package doesn't know how to write portable shell code. :-(
