IMO, the best fix for this will be to change 'make' so we have
a way to specify an alternate shell (instead of the hard-coded
value of /bin/sh) for the 'installworld-ish' targets.
There are some other changes in this general area which will
probably also be done sometime in the next few weeks, but
those aren't for "urgent bugs" so we can take more time to
look into them.
It would be a very good idea to have this update also added
to RELENG_5_2, but I'll wait to hear from re@ as to how they
way to handle that. The nature of this bug is that someone
can follow the officially-recommended order for a source
upgrade, and still have 'make installworld' die in the middle
of it's processing. The user is left with a system where most
of /bin is unusable (unless they know how to work around it).
