Of course. 8-)  There is no /bin/bash on almost everything that
doesn't call itself Linux or GNU Hurd.  Don't know about Mac OS X.

Yes, I've seen it on the alexandria mailing list for Gump already ,
where it could be changed to /bin/bash because the script already
relied on bash - Ant is different, the .sh files should work on any
Bourne Shell derivate.
