About a remaining shell hack.

Now in the Makefile we have this hack to bring to make a working shell when 
entering to the chroot:

# The convoluted piece of code below is necessary to provide 'make' with a 
valid shell in the
# chroot environment. (Unless someone knows a different way)
# Manually create the /bin directory and provide link to the /tools dir.
# Also change the original symlink creation to include (f)orce to prevent 
failure due to
#  pre-existing links.
 @if [ ! -e $(MOUNT_PT)/bin ]; then \
   mkdir $(MOUNT_PT)/bin; \
   cd $(MOUNT_PT)/bin && \
   ln -sf /tools/bin/bash bash; ln -sf bash sh; \
   sudo chown -R 0:0 $(MOUNT_PT)/bin; \
 @sudo sed -e 's|^ln -sv |ln -svf |' -i $(CMDSDIR)/chapter06/*-createfiles
 @$(call echo_CHROOT_request)
 @( sudo $(CHROOT1) "cd $(SCRIPT_ROOT) && make CHROOT")
 @touch $@

After the current SHELL change, I think that that hack maybe could be replaced 

ifeq ($(shell ls /bin/bash),/bin/bash)
  SHELL = /bin/bash
  SHELL = /tools/bin/bash

or something more simple, if someone can find a better way.

What do you think?
