These types of shell tests check whether or not the first value is
unset or null, "omitting the colon results in a test only for a
parameter that is unset". So what I'm saying is you can set BINDIR to
"" and the script will still use that value (I'll let you choose to
have a blank BINDIR). Maybe that doesn't make sense?

CAVEAT: we should probably check with the Solaris guys to verify this
works in their shell? But I'm assuming it will because the other
variables are using something similar.
