"rc" is used here as default shell for our students - mainly on Solaris,
but also on SGI Irix and Digital Unix. Most of them (actually > 400 ) never
change to "*sh", so "rc" "proves" to be sufficient. Well, our yppasswd
won't allow you to alter your login shell if the name starts with "r", but
that's another story.

Version 1.5beta was ported to Solaris (2.4) long ago, fixing some ugly
problems with signal handling. We also started POSIXifying the code,
but there is still some more work to do. We are not that interested in
any new features, but we'd like to share our modifications with the community
and see a finalized version of "rc" which compiles quietly and runs
on (at least) standard UNIX systems.
