Any ideas why sanity.sh failed on my system?  Good news
is that I found out where a suitable "id" resided (xgp4 or
something) and was able to set an ID= to make sanity work,
at least for the individual tests I wanted to run.

If your default id command is deficient, it's quite likely that the
default versions of other commands are deficient, too.  Rather than
explicitly setting the ID executable, put the directory containing the
good version at the beginning of your $PATH before running the tests so
that you get the standards-conforming versions of all the commands.

Though it wouldn't hurt to figure out which program is failing and why (again, I suspect expr) so that I can add a test at the beginning of sanity.sh and print a warning message about the broken program for others.

control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them,
but to inform their discretion.
