First off, it was not my commit, my name is used to sync to LFS.org, but 
the commit was done by chris. When the new server gets online, that will 
change how we do our svn mirroring for the CLFS website to the LFS 
website and the confusing will be eliminated.

 Changed commands for bash and perl testsuites for more consistency with most other packages

Second Chris and I just discussed it and the change will be reverted.
