It is truly scary to me that anyone might believe that changing /bin/sh
on any production type system is a suitable "solution" to anything.
It might be desirable for other reasons, but if bootstrapping pkgsrc
is causing people to need to do this, then something is broken.
However, I kind of suspect that there's probably a better way, where you
just tell the bootstrap procedure what shell to use, rather than changing
the content of the shell the bootstrap uses by default. I am hoping
that someone who knows will indicate what that way is.
Needing to use 2 different shells during the bootstrap might be a more
difficult problem to solve - are you able to say why that was needed
(that is, what exactly each of the shells was unable to process
that required switching to a different one) ?
