 From the PR (summary)
    sh -n doesn't work with sh -c. sh -n is documented as working
    when not interactive; -c is not interactive.
    probably trivial
 It is [trivial] and will be (is now) fixed in the sources I am working from.
 But there is much more wrong with -n than that - it was only barely
 implemented at all (in fact, the src/bin/sh/options.h file has it
 marked as unimplemented, like -b etc)
 I am going to start a thread on tech-userlevel to discuss -n and
 decide just what should be done with it...
