Yes, that’s not very surprising.

For this and related issues, I’m attempting in the ‘core-updates’ branch
to allow builds without /bin/sh in the chroot.  Instead, builds use the
Bash binary that’s explicitly passed as an input.

After some tweaking (more on that later), it can successfully build
everything up to ‘guile-final’.  What remains to be seen is how much
manual tweaking each package will require.  I’m hoping it will be
reasonable, but it doesn’t come for free either, as can be seen from the
commits that adjust packages in ‘core-updates’.
