yes, csh is shit, tcsh is workable. But don't use it as /bin/sh.
But then, i use /bin/sh for all scripts on solaris and it works.
if help_diff.sh uses bashisms (which is most likely the case) then
it cannot work on a plain bourne shell.

The only thing i spotted is the "read -r ...", which isn't
supported. Removing this and help_diff.sh works even on solaris.

Nope, not true.

We don't require anywhere gnu grep (not anymore), we don't need gawk
(nawk and mawk work too), sh has to be a bash if using bashisms, which
configure and all the other compile time scripts do not.
gmake is the only thing we really depend on gnu stuff.
