Are you upgrading from -stable to -current? I had that same problem. My
(crap) workaround, was to create a Makefile for the points were sh
failed (iirc was chpass and some other command) that looked like this:

all: install

        echo foo

That enabled me to successfully installworld, I took note of the faulty
places and installed them afterwards. I know it's not the 'kosher'
solution, but it worked for me.
