They use chef.
The chef omnibus installer assumes there is a /bin/bash. Even the FreeBSD 
version of it. Well, it least it did the last time I looked. Maybe this got 
fixed in the meantime.
Which means that to „bootstrap“ a node, you’ve first got to install pkg on it, 
install bash, symlink it to /bin/bash and then bootstrap the node.
Which kind of runs against the concept of doing everything via chef.
