Patch to fix zbar-0.23-r1

zbar does not build with /bin/sh not linked to bash

I use dash as shell and it breaks every time.

Note that the patch applies to zbar-0.23-r1, not to zbar-0.23.1 as you went partly the same way with a patch to this version. However, your patch to zbar-0.23.1 is still not complete!

Got a fixed one for 0.23.1 too? :)
