Replace the interpreter so this doesn't fail with PKG_DEVELOPER.

Please set PKG_DEVELOPER=yes to detect problems like this!

We should just set this by default.  There's absolutely no excuses for
packages to be failing these basic checks.

Fully agreed.  I expect that pkgsrc provides packages that don't contain
obvious, easy to avoid bugs.

A recent example is print/dvipdfmx, which contained an unresolved @GS@
placeholder in bin/dvipdft for at least the last 5 years because only
@RUNGS@ was substituted.  That's so easy to detect and avoid that it
shouldn't go unnoticed.
