I wrote a script to do a -current build (and it works from the command
line), but when I put it in my fcrontab, the calls to script don't seem to
call their command argument. Any input would be greatly appreciated. A
simplified scenario follows. Also please let me know if anyone else gets
these symptoms with this setup.
