We should probably drop the "export X=y" construct, and use "export X;
X=y" instead.    As /bin/bash wont be on Solaris anyways.

That would be useful;   Anything that moves us towards a one-step
configuration of Mono on every OS supported.

I applied the patch;   If there are other cases in other versions of
Solaris, we will have to handle those.
