 Well, at least we now know not to use dash when building a system.
This was the second report, the first time we never got to the
bottom of it.  I'm just surprised that it hasn't cropped up more
often - maybe it's an optional thing in ubuntu.

 Adding SHELL=/bin/bash into the make invocation(s) seems a harmless
thing to do, but I don't have any systems where /bin/sh is not bash
so I can't test it.
