#7963 new Bugs uses echo -n, which is not portable

Keywords: Cc:


The echo builtin in OS X's sh does not support any command line switches, which results in's output being somewhat ugly (but still working; this is purely cosmetic). The attach patch simply replaces all of the uses of echo -n with printf, which works on all unix-like systems.
