The shell is part of every Unix like OS.  The GnuPG configure stuff
works fine on _dozens_ of different OSes even on some very old ones.
So I expect that Apple gets it right and I won't change GnuPG just for
one "new" OS and break dozens over others.

If it turns out that it does not break too much systems I will
probably change to it.  The recent problems with the updated gettext
made me somewhat cautious.

This mail was proudly sent using a Linux based GNU system - which is
entirely Free Software.  Voluntary work for a proprietary OS is a
courtesy - if there are other important tasks to be done for Free
Software I will do the latter.
