Other operating systems keep lynx sources for example in a
CVS tree, which discards (by default) the executable bit on
files anyway. So the correct fix is to prefix invocations
of any scripts with ${SHELL} in all places.

Even the FSF (autotools) has realised it and started to
patch e.g. libtool.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
