What errors did you receive when using FreeBSD's native /bin/sh ?

bash should not be required. If it is, then that is a bug. Please provide
details so this can be fixed.

The syntax 'if [ $var == "val" ]' is not so really appreciated by Bourne
Shell. If you look at both files http://jlang.dyndns.org/files/Xorg/sh and
http://jlang.dyndns.org/files/Xorg/bash, you will see the behaviour
differences between sh and bash.
