I have already made some progress on building with
HOST_SH=/some/other/shell and searching the build log for references to
/bin/sh.  The next step is a chroot environment in which /bin/sh either
doesn't exist, or logs how it's called.  Eventually, I should have some
patches to ensure that HOST_SH is used throughout the build.
