"whence" *is* a builtin for bourne shell. You must mean that it's not a
builtin for bash.

OK, I never got warnings on RedHat, so I guess it has a real bourne
shell (or something closer to a real one) instead of a symlink from "sh"
Sorry but I can't apply the patch as it's going to break other Unix like
systems, like OpenBSD and Solaris. Is there some way to check that the
shell isn't really a bourne shell but a bash shell?
