Thanks for the suggestion

dash should be POSIX-compatible and should require fewer resources than bash.

I would have thought so too about portability, but actually it turns out that
dash is much less portable than bash, due to its very incomplete autoconf
script. Compiling it for UnixPC requires many more custom adaptions with just
as much opportunities for errors.
Unless I maybe got the wrong version, I've got here fetched via apt
source. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a plain ftp or http download location.
