Thanks for reporting. This issue has been fixed in the SVN
repository and will be available with the next version.

So basically, you patch just changed the the shebang. But why was that needed? /bin/sh is not supposed to be bash. FreeBSD doesn't come with bash installed at all. So this patch makes the script work on Solaris, but break on FreeBSD (it worked there before).

Is there any other way to fix it?

/bin/sh on Solaris is statnd sh, on Linux /bin/sh is actually bash.
From the error log, it looks usage of local and test cause the error.
change it to /bin/bash will fix that.

On FreeBSD, I image /bin/sh is also bash, but no /bin/bash. I'll try to
fix the local and test error on Solaris, not change /bin/bash.

Please try the most recent revision of from the SVN repository.

No, /bin/sh is the FreeBSD sh shell, and not bash. And on GNU/Linux, isn't bash supposed to behave like sh if run as /bin/sh and not /bin/bash? Anyway, the latest changes made by codesquid work for me.

It works for me.

Check out trunk code, works fine on Solaris. codesquid's patch is nice.
