no, this is a problem. on irix there is no /bin/bash, only

i'm not sure if this is a problem in general but i'm sure it'll screw
something up for me, since I had to load the mailtools for perl, i used
my irix path, but now i have to uninstall the freeware version, since
other GNU tools (using this call by name) forced me to put freeware/local
first in my path.

what is the reason for changing perl?
