remove bash requirement
The bash shell was removed as a requirement to build apache openoffice ages ago.
configure still looks for bash:
dnl Check whether the bash shell can be used.
if test -z "$SHELLPATH"; then
AC_MSG_ERROR([bash not found in \$PATH])
SHELLPATH=`echo $SHELLPATH | $SED -n "s/\/bash$//p"`
... and that gets used to set $OOO_SHELL:
# 3. shell path.
if ( $platform =~ m/os2/ )
$OOO_SHELL = 'sh';
$OOO_SHELL = '@SHELLPATH@'."\/bash";
Bah... I removed all the invocations upstream but there are obviously some leftovers.
Thanks for pointing those out.
