Most (all?) Linux distributions and newer Mac OS X systems come with bash.
FreeBSD comes with tcsh.
Would it be worth it to have some pkgsrc setting to use native bash or
native tcsh if needed?
For example, security/pinepgp wants bash.
And misc/openoffice wants a tcsh.
It seems like some Linux and new Mac OS users would not like bash
reinstall or FreeBSD user would not want tcsh being reinstalled for this.
(I don't care much about that since I use bash from pkgsrc, but on
FreeBSD, I do use tcsh from /bin.)
Any thoughts on this? How would you do this? Maybe builtin.mk file?
