Thanks for looking at this closely. I would like to make sure that the 
script is possible to run on Solaris as soon as possible. The intent 
with my CR was not to improve or clean up the script. Thus, I am not 
really inclined to go down the path of changing too much in the script 
within the scope of this CR.

I think you point out some relevant issues with the current script. But 
I think they will be better handled in separate CRs.

Thanks again.
