In nobase.test:

# Remove the 'x' bits just for fun.  (Peter O'Gorman said: "If an
# upstream source tarball does not use the autotools, it is sometimes
# easier to build if it is modified to use them. Then a patch is
# generated, and applied to the unpacked clean sources during the
# build. patch(1) knows nothing about permissions, so executable bits
# etc can disappear.")
chmod a-x install-sh

yet removing the x bits just makes the test fail for me:

/bin/ksh: ./install-sh: cannot execute - Permission denied
gmake: *** [sub/.dirstamp] Error 126

with gmake 3.80, and bsd make tries to exec(install-sh) which fails.
