And I see make not using the SHELL env user variable and forcing /bin/sh by 
default as a bug ;-)

That fix is now in trunk.

Well, tacking into account that all *LFS books have in their host 
prerequisites that Bash must be available and that must be the shell used by 
the builder user to set-up a sane environment, I don't see a real need to do 
jhalfs POSIX-compatible.

But if you are willing to make such patch keeping availbables all current 
jhalfs features and extensions I will be happly aplying it.
