I wonder what caused the problems - we've had reports about stuff that
needed to be quoted and we've obviously not quoted everthing that
could be quoted (you've shown several places we forgot to touch), but
most of your other changes are either (1) replacing `` with $()
or (2) replacing

if [...] then

with [...] && command

While (2) is a question of style (and I prefer ours, YMMV), we cannot
perform (1) if it is bash specific (I think it is).  Do you know
whether Korn Shell supports this?

I'm totally opposed to removing the AIX hack as it would break
backwards compatibilty.  People don't need to set JAVACMD on AIX right

I'm not sure whether we could run into difficult to track down
backwards incompatibilities if we change the order of CLASSPATH.  Why
do you think that putting tools.jar at the front is more sane than
putting it at the end?
