We need an easy way to tell pkgsrc "My /bin/sh is broken, please use
/path/to/working/shell instead", and to have that take effect throughout
pkgsrc. Solaris people also have to deal with broken /bin/sh. I
recently started to suspect that setting SH=/path/to/working/shell would
do the trick, but I am not sure that it's used consistently.
Anyway, if setting SH is sufficient, then maybe pkgsrc/platform/*.mk
could set SH to something appropriate, or maybe bootstrap could figure
it out and set SH in mk.conf.example.
