then we would need a configure test for Solaris to examine what shell 
or what test binary to use, as one special shell like ksh or bash 
cannot be found on any system? -f works fine at all the places where -e 
was used. But in fact I was quite surprised that /bin/sh on Solaris 
doesn't implement test -e, I thought this would be a very basic thing.
