For AIX, most users really want prefix-bash for performance reasons.

For others like Solaris, the question is:
Are we willing to test/debug/fix/upstream-report such bugs ?

If we are, then we should keep using /bin/sh.
If not, then we want to use prefix-bash.

One thing to keep in mind: Who else if not prefix-portage has that power
to test/debug/fix such upstream bugs on that range of platforms ?

Using prefix-bash can always be the quick workaround for such bugs, if
one does not have time to debug immediately - let the user choose!

So maybe we want some FEATURE, or simply introduce users on how to set
CONFIG_SHELL in etc/profile.bashrc, to switch between /bin/sh and
prefix-bash (defaulting to prefix-bash for aix, to /bin/sh for others) ?
