.. A test (for me):
1.  save your current work and
2.  edit the two lines in the clfs.xsl that write the sha-bang
   !/bin/sh  to !/bin/bash
3. delete the clfs-commands directory..
     and rerun jhalfs

   This will create the required /bin/bash for now. I will look at the 
what is necessary to make the scripts shell neutral.
