This one?
+# Building the devicelist:
+# Kernel 2.4 running'
+if [ `dmesg | grep -c "Elite 3D"` -ne 0 ]; then
+  afb_devs=`/bin/dmesg | /bin/egrep -i "Elite 3D" | /bin/sed 's/\:.*//'`
+# Kernel 2.6:
+if [ `/bin/dmesg | /bin/grep -c "ffb: AFB"` -gt 0 ]; then
+  afb_devs=`/bin/cat -s /proc/fb  | /bin/egrep -i "Elite 3D" | /bin/sed 
's/\ .*//' | /bin/sed 's/^/fb/'`

First thing is useless use of cat and why egrep instead of grep? You can also 
remove one sed (untested):
  afb_devs=fb`/bin/grep -i "Elite 3D" /proc/fb | /bin/sed 's/\ .*//'`
Those are two programs less to execute...
And maybe put case for 2.4.* and 2.6.* so not both have to be executed. This 
way, you can get rid of both if statements.
