Busybox has worked fine with pkgsrc too, in my builds last year.

They add a symlink. Requiring prefixes would make more sense in fact, gnu and bsd each
add too much to posix make, differently, for such a thing as a usable standard make
subset to exist.

Endless bikeshedding possibility, eh? (: Hashbangs are trivial to replace with the
REPLACE_BASH or the subst framework as documented in doc/pkgsrc.html though. Placing
any bash path in your script is just a way of warning the user that the script uses
extensions not present in other shells.
