I know this is an old thread, but what I was trying to say is that
this script assumes that the shell used outside of prefix is in the
same path as the one inside prefix.  Specifically, there is no
"/bin/bash" on our AIX 5.2, only /usr/bin/bash.  Whereas in the
prefix, it's looking for $EPREFIX/bin/bash.  This line fouls things
up:

export SHELL=${EPREFIX}${SHELL}

Since my shell is /usr/bin/bash It's going to look for
$EPREFIX/usr/bin/bash, which is not installed in $EPREFIX, it's at
$EPREFIX/bin/bash.

In France, there's a popular saying about Linux that essentially translates as:
"Linux? You can get a less powerful system, but it will cost you more."
