    KARAF-4566 "karaf" script invokes /bin/sh but requires /bin/bash functions

    The bin/karaf script uses the "local" command which is a shell builtin of bash and similar
shells, but is not required for POSIX-compliance in sh. When I attempt to run karaf on a Solaris
system, I see the following output:
    root@solaris:/opendaylight/bin# ./karaf
    ./karaf[172]: local: not found [No such file or directory]
    ./karaf[182]: local: not found [No such file or directory]
    ./karaf[183]: local: not found [No such file or directory]
    Lines 172, 182 and 183 invoke "local" to make local variables to the function. According
to "man bash", this is a shell builtin. However, bin/karaf is invoked as:
    On most flavors of linux, this resolves to bash or dash which probably runs in a restricted
environment after checking to see that its $0 is sh. But on Solaris's /bin/sh is actually
ksh93 for backwards compatibility.
    Since "local" is not part of a POSIX-compliant /bin/sh, depending on it in a script that
is invoked with /bin/sh is a bug.
