Thanks!  Interesting.  I thought test -L and test -h were the same, so I
preferred test -L as more readable.

It looks like I was wrong - they are not the same on old Solaris!, and I
better replace all occurrences of test -L with test -h.  :-)

Anyone having a reason not to replace test -L with test -h ?

Otherwise I'll do it on CVS.
