On the subject of orthagonal things: This test fails on AIX with /bin/sh
(but not /bin/bash) due to some interaction of ssize_b100dots and the
build_option function. On that system:

    $ ./git version --build-options
    git version 2.20.0-rc1
    cpu: 00FA74164C00
    no commit associated with this build
    sizeof-long: 4
    sizeof-size_t: 4

But it somehow ends up in the 'die' condition in that case statement. I
dug around briefly but couldn't find the cause, probably some limitation
in the shell constructs it supports. Just leaving a note about this...
