My unix scripts are now dead, after the upgrade to 10.7.3. A typical error message is   /bin/bash: bad interpreter: Operation not permitted  Googling this issue shows other people are having build scripts fail and are fixing this by renaming links to libraries.  My scripts are simple, they just run an executable, or used to...  something like this:

#! /bin/bash

./myprogram << EOF
