I've had this problem trying to port pkgsrc to A/UX.  It's /bin/sh is
horribly broken and can't run the scripts.  Running as /bin/ksh
(included by default) works fine though.  Not finding a "good" way to do
this, I check for the existence of a file the first time through, and if
not found, create it and exec /bin/ksh bootstrap.  At the end of the
script I clean up the file.  My patch for this has not been submitted
