The bashbug script is intended to be created and installed when bash
is built.  It does not attempt to dynamically read your current
environment, but uses whatever values the build environment gives it.
I'm not sure about Apple's build process.  It might have something to
do with the fact that bash is a universal binary.

It uses `$DEFEDITOR' and `$EDITOR', in that order, before trying a bunch
of relatively plausible possibilities.
