comment How different shell scripts map to different OSes
Debian and its children distros (at least some of them, Ubuntu for sure) now use Dash as /bin/sh. So I would be very careful about assuming that Bashisms will work on "just about any Linux distro out there". See this for some tips regarding how to avoid Bashisms: wiki.ubuntu.com/DashAsBinSh.

comment select files from a set
This sounds like a programming question more than a user one - maybe more appropriate for Stack Overflow? Beyond that, can you explain a little more what you want to happen? You want to use the find command to show all the files and then let the user trim the selections?

comment CPAN install to many directories
@Jayen With a set-up like that, I understand not wanting to install a new Perl interpreter. local::lib and cpanm should be able to simplify your modules, though, even without Perlbrew.

This shouldn't be necessary since MacVim enables Ruby support by default.

revised How Unix is Mac OS X?
This is absurd. OSX is a perfectly common shorthand for Mac OS X and repeating "Mac OS X" over and over and over is tedious.

comment Easy way to get gcc and make in OSX
This is slightly orthogonal to this question, but for future Googlers. The Xcode installer bundles together a bunch of (smaller) .pkg packages. In theory, you should be able to open Xcode and install only what you really want from it. See this link, for example, github.com/mxcl/homebrew/wiki/Xcode

If you want prebuilt binary packages, check out Rudix.
