It's a bit sad, but maybe this is the best solution in practice - I
received a couple of private emails with precisely this suggestion - that on Solaris trying to use /bin/sh is going to cause headaches forever and that everyone using Solaris is actually using a POSIX shell instead (such as zsh - which if I understood currectly is shipped with solaris too -, or
bash).

Both, actually, if not quite up-to-date... (haven't tested Sol9 yet)

Same here (Sol 8).

Objections anyone ? Is such an approach going to make someone unhappy ?

Certainly not me.

Nope. But what exactly would you replace #!/bin/sh in the GNUstep scripts with? A current FreeBSD still ships with:

address@hidden:(~)$ uname -sr
FreeBSD 4.6-STABLE
address@hidden:(~)$ l /bin/*sh
-r-xr-xr-x  2 root  wheel  641232 Jun 16 17:54 /bin/csh
-r-xr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  454488 Jun 16 17:54 /bin/sh
-r-xr-xr-x  2 root  wheel  641232 Jun 16 17:54 /bin/tcsh

Cheers,
