Thank you Alan!

Now I've got two suggestions that somehow contradict each other.
Martin suggested to check for particular OS only as a last resort, but 
without knowing that we run under Unix, we cannot treat a command 
absence as an error.

I think we can assume that none of the tests which need UnixCommands are 
for Windows, so I added explicit checking for that.
Having made sure the OS is a Unix (i.e. not Windows), the absence of a 
required command now causes an exception to be thrown.

Would you please take a look at the updated webrev?


Sincerely yours,
