I've never had any trouble on my i386 systems with the build.sh
process, but the Cobalt has always been a bit tougher. I've often
had trouble with sh; lately I've taken to temporarily replacing
/bin/sh with bash.
Once I do that, builds of both the regular source tree and
of pkgsrc seem to be much more successful. The only downside
of this replacement is that the startup scripts in /etc/rc.d
don't seem to groove on bash, so I have to make sure I reinstate
the normal /bin/sh before rebooting.
I've been too lazy to PR this, let alone figure out the
problem, so I'm not exactly pointing fingers here. :-)
