>Originator:     Ulrich Habel
>Release:        Solaris 5.9/sparc
>Organization:
>Environment:
SunOS sun-install 5.9 Generic_122300-07 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V240
>Description:
On Solaris the shell "sh" seems to be terribly broken. It's known for a longer time, however do-sandbox-build is a script that uses "/bin/sh" in hardcoded form and so the script fails with the following error:

mk/bulk/build: error:
    Error reading the variables.
    Try running mk/bulk/build with another shell.
>How-To-Repeat:
run mk/bulk/do-sandbox-build on a Solaris 9 system
>Fix:
A good way would be the detection of the OS - I've attached a small patch to address this issue:
