Before this, we just gave them an error message if they had not set $FORREST_HOME like the
nice instructions showed them. What is the advantage in trying to guess it for them? It seems
to just introduce compatibility problems.

There are some commands in the bin/forrest script that are specific to the bash shell. On
most systems the default /bin/sh is actually bash. However, not so on one significant OS.
We should be neutral.

As a workaround the script has been set to be /bin/bash
