rsync 2.6.1 fails tests on OSF1

    At least it does for me on v5.1

    It is a result of a bug in sh on OSF1.

    "$var"? doesn't do file-globbing if $var contains a / (it does if it 
doesn't).  This causes a touch command in teh merge test to fail.


    Set BIN_SH=xpg4 in your environment while running the test.  This 
causes the POSIX version of sh to be used (see man sh on OSF1).
