	building devel/autogen attempts to execute /usr/pkg/bin/bash
	for which no dependency is listed.

	pkg_delete -r bash 2>/dev/null	# No, you probably shouldn't...
	cd ..../pkgsrc/devel.autogen
	make install

	Expect to see ...

	followed by a nunch of other errors, most probably caused by the
	script bash was intended to run not doing what it was intended to

	Ideally, discover that hash is not really needed for the script
	in question, and replace "usr/pkg/bin/bash" by "${SHELL}" or
	something.   Otherswise, if bash really is needed then
	add a dependency.

	The easy workaround is just to install shells/bash before
	building autogen (manually satisfying the dependency).
	That works, but ...

	Please bupm PKGREVISION when this is fixed, otherwise there
	will be binary packages existing that happen to have worked
	because bash was installed (including mine, that I generated to
	test the "manually add bash" workaround) but which don't
	contain any dependency upon bash (for all I know, there may be
	run time dependencies upon it, as well as the build time one
	noted above).
