Description msterret 2001-12-19 17:06:44 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.6+) Gecko/20011217

Description of problem:
arpwatch-2.1a11-9.i386.rpm contains a script /var/arpwatch/arp2ethers
that is, for no good reason, a csh script.  This means that the package
depends on /bin/csh and that prevents me from doing rpm -e tcsh which
I would dearly love to do.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. head -1 /var/arpwatch/arp2ethers

Actual Results:  #!/bin/csh -f

Expected Results:  #!/bin/sh
