Thank you Robert for the hint!

That is bad, but likely a result of being bent on using shell script instead of
a programming language.

Until this is done, I guess the proper solution is write/use a
subroutine/function to handle what was intended to handle with sysrc and no
longer use sysrc.

I will do so, and leave this PR up as a reminder that the sysrc script should
be replaced with a proper program that is not affected by shell limitations and
side effects.
