[PATCH] Make feedmail usable for Cygwin


From: Edi Weitz
Subject: [PATCH] Make feedmail usable for Cygwin
Date: Fri, 08 Oct 2004 23:16:16 +0200
User-agent: Gnus/5.1006 (Gnus v5.10.6) Emacs/21.3 (windows-nt)

[I first posted to gnu.emacs.bug but that doesn't seem to work. Sorry
if you see this twice.]

In the current version of feedmail you can't use its binmail template
facility with Cygwin's bash because "/bin/sh" is hard-coded. This tiny
patch changes that.

Cheers,
Edi.
