More like the blind leading the stupid... Read on.

Your talk of shells other than bash made something click that should
have clicked before. Bash is the shell I use. However, not so long ago, I
changed the /bin/sh symlink from bash to ash so that netscape helper apps
would not get screwed up by the double parantheses problem.
I keep a log of changes to and maintainance on my system. When I
saw this symlink change, I reasoned that root's shell is bash, and since I
never saw any #!/bin/sh as the first line of any of the files I looked
through, bash would be used. I never gave it a second thought.
Thanks for coming forward. And thanks to all those who offered
help. I'll likely be back as I have compiled but things are not working as
smoothly as they might. But I am going to go back to the docs first.
Thanks again to all.
