The only concern I had was that if we couldn't find some way of forcing the 
shell executed by `make' to be /bin/bash without affecting the environment of 
LFS package builds, jhalfs either simply wouldn't work on non-bash systems or 
might compromise the integrity of the build.  As Dan and you have now found a 
workaround, that's fine by me.  I've got far more important things to do with 
my time than rewrite already working scripts :)

Thanks again for everyones wonderful efforts on jhalfs!
