Follow-up Comment #3, bug #56832 (project findutils):

My gut feeling is no, because the test should reflect whether the tool
actually works.  That is, if we care about making this work on Solaris and its
derivatives enough to make a code change at all, we should simply change the
code so that a correctly-working shell is selected as the interpreter for

While we could also make a point fix (e.g. use /usr/bin/echo or printf) for
this problem, I think that would be less useful because it leaves unsolved a
bunch of other potential problems.  For example printf has other limitations
on most versions of Solaris.

Other opinions - especially contrary opinions - invited!
