Still, where's the harm in returning only EXIT_SUCCESS & EXIT_FAILURE on
systems that require that and a little more information on systems which
support it?  We're talking about a few lines in, maybe one
in acconfig.h, a line in system.h, and a single line in main.  I'll do
the work, or what Donald hasn't done already.


P.S.  run.c already seems to non-portably _exit() with bash's 127 when
it can't exec a program.
