I can see a few problems on Solaris 10 wrt version.sh:

-Stock /bin/sh doesn't understand "if [ $LOCALVER \> 1 ]".  I just use
bash instead.  /usr/xpg4/bin/sh appears to be OK.

-/bin/grep doesn't understand -q.  /usr/xpg4/bin/grep does.

-/bin/head doesn't understand -c.  Neither does /usr/ucb/bin/head.

I don't know why Solaris chooses to ship crippled tools in the default
install, but they do.
