This script sources test-lib.sh, which in turn uses features like $() that are not portable to Solaris /bin/sh. But I didn't see any bash-isms - everything in those two files appears to be safe for use with POSIX sh, so I'm okay with the patch as is:


(If we later want to be portable to Solaris, we should resync test-lib.sh with coreutils and/or gnulib, from where it was originally forked, since the latter now have means of finding and re-execing under a POSIX-like shell if /bin/sh wasn't strong enough.)
