  > Hmm, so we were hoping that whatever `sh` implementation was used would support a -d option and would not fail when it was given $PWD? That's a really odd assumption, so thanks for cleaning that up. Do other shells (than FreeBSD) support a -d option (bash and dash don't seem to)?
  It looks like bash accepts unknown flags if -c is in use, but BSD sh doesn't. Maybe dash works the same way? I'm too lazy to ssh to a Debian machine right now to find out.
