           Summary: Two of gold testsuite scripts require bash
           Product: binutils
           Version: 2.22 (HEAD)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gold

Suggested method to remove bash-specific notation from gold testsuite scripts

This was originally reported to the binutils mail list: 

Most of the gold testsuite scripts start with "#!/bin/sh" and run fine on my

The following test scripts don't specify a shell unlike the rest:
* icf_safe_so_test.sh
* icf_safe_test.sh

Two of those scripts (asterisk) fail on my platform because they use notation
specific to bash.  I believe the intent is that all testsuite scripts only
require the Bourne shell and therefore these two scripts have a bug.  I have
attached the patch I used to fix the two broken scripts.  Hopefully somebody
agrees and incorporates the patches or provides and alternative solution.
