           Summary: cairo tests assume /bin/sh is bash
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.6.4
          Platform: SPARC
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: cworth at cworth.org
        ReportedBy: mjbauer at eecs.tufts.edu
         QAContact: cairo-bugs at cairographics.org

Several of the test scripts for cairo appear to assume that /bin/sh is actually
bash.  This breaks on Solaris systems (I have verified this on Sol9 and Sol10,
and do not know of any release of Solaris which had bash as /bin/sh), which are
much more ksh-like.  I am told that Ubuntu's /bin/sh is also not bash, but I do
not have a Ubuntu box to verify this on.

At least the following scripts all invoke /bin/sh with bash syntax:
* src/check-def.sh
* src/check-plt.sh
* src/check-headers.sh
* src/check-doc-syntax.sh
* doc/public/check-doc-coverage.sh
