Re removing bashisms.

i.spectral: uses $array[0]. Don't know how to fix that, changed to use
#!/bin/bash; backported to 6.2.

v.in.gpsbabel: uses "echo -e" in two places, like:
 echo -e "$ROUTE_ID \t$NUMBER \t$R_NAME \t$START_PNT ">> "$TMP.route_atts"

how to fix that? 

    | tr '|' '\t' >> "$TMP.route_atts"

Vague memories that [..=""] was causing problems on Cygwin long long ago.
It has been updated to use [ -z "$foo" ] in many places, not the other way around.
