This appears to be some sort of weird shell thing.  I've got bash 3.0 
compiling in the background to see if that fixes the problem.

Cogito also appears to rely on the gnu tools.  For instance, I've seen 
the "-a" flag used with cp.  OS X's default installation of cp doesn't 
support -a.  darwinports coreutils installs gnu cp as "gcp".

Myself, I can't live without cp -a, so have linked gcp to cp, but I 
presume we want to be portable, at least to a certain degree.
