Summary: Creating makefrag files fails on OSX
Creating makefrag files (such as corlib.dll.makefrag) fails under OSX because echo -e is not
being used. This results in the characters "\ttouch" being placed at the end of the file instead
of a tab character followed by the command touch.
Whether to use "echo -e" or "echo" is determined in mcs/build/config-default.make. The check
for HP/UX is causing ECHO_ESCAPE to be set to "echo".

What does 'echo -e foo' produce in HP/UX?

+In many old unix variants -e is not supported and echo doesn't support
+The makefiles should probably be changed to just embed the TAB char
+instead of \t. Waiting from comments by Peter.
