After notice that that test don't work as expected when resuming a failed 
build, due /bin/bash may has been already installed into the chroot  at that 
point, I found a more simple solution.

In the Makefile header only 

SHELL = /bin/bash

is required to can handle host that have a /bin/sh symlink that don't point 
to /bin/bash.

Then, to supply make with the working shell expected by the books when 
entering to the chroot, just adding

CHROOT:  SHELL=/tools/bin/bash

do the work.

Simple, nice, and don't mess the SHELL used by make sub-process :-)
