Hmm, env doesn't exist under Solaris except when GNU shellutils are
installed.  In all cases it will not reside under /usr/bin :-(
So we should tell the sys-admin to install env in /usr/bin or bash in /bin.
I think we can assume bash to be under /bin.  In fact, our local sys-admin
installed it so.
BTW, it's less work to move bash to /bin than to add a SHELL line to each
