I'm working on finding ways to eliminate the "unsafe" changes. BTW, there's
no problem with #!/bin/sh lines, the sh port for OS/2 takes care of these.

The ones left include:

1) src/regex/mkh contains "PATH=/bin:/usr/bin ; export PATH" which ruins the
normal path so nothing runs. Can this be eliminated? Surely these are already
in the path of any system that needs it.

2) src/regex/Makefile contains "SHELL = /bin/sh" which of course isn't where
you find sh on OS/2. Other makefiles in the source are created using $SHELL
which Configure set up as just "sh" for OS/2 but not here. I have to change
this to "SHELL = sh".

3) src/helpers/CutRule DOESN'T have a #!/bin/sh so sh doesn't recognize it as
an executable. Puting it in doesn't seem to break anything (well, I tried it
on Linux) but I don't understand why it's not needed.
