From: Antonio Quartulli <antonio@openvpn.net>

The t_net script currently has #!/bin/sh but it implicitly assume to
be using bash.
This is fine on most distros, but some do not have sh pointing to bash
by default, thus breaking the script.
Explicitly use bash to avoid failures.

On the other hand, run this unit-test only if SITNL was enabled at
compile time. This test was designed with SITNL in mind and it is
not yet ready for other backends.

Running only when SITNL is enabled implies running on Linux only
therefore we are guaranteed that bash will always work.

While at it, also add a comment as of why the t_client.rc file is

Does what it says and fixes "make check" errors on platforms that either
have a non-bash in /bin/sh, or are not compiled with SITNL.  (As a side note,
the claim "this is fine on most distros" is one of the aspects that annoys
me very much as a sysadmin - it is *never* fine to call /bin/sh and assume
you can get any sort of functionality that is more than POSIX sh that way.
Even if it works on your Linux system and that of your friend, it is still
not *fine*, it will just cause annoyance for other people)

Your patch has been applied to the master branch.
