That looks like you have installed bash and replaced the original
/bin/sh with (a link to) bash and/or have a strange $PATH.
I strongly suggest you don't try to use bash as /bin/sh: it's a poor
/bin/sh lookalike, and will e. g. break quite a few jobs in
If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message. see http://www.eyrie.org./~eagle/faqs/questions.html
