#820: r.in.wms doesn't work in WinGRASS installer distribution

Comment (by hamish):

 * If it matters I can probably replace bc with the more common awk to do
 the math.
  * No, it really does need to be #!/bin/bash. Variable arrays[n] are not
 present in plain old sh, and if you try without bash you get errors like
 you see in the previous post.
  * wget can be replaced by curl if it is installed; there's a flag. But
 really we/msys should ship a copy of wget in our windows package. (fwiw
 Mac ships curl not wget)
  * r.in.wms for 6.4 is a problematic dead end. The new Python rewrite for
 grass 7 is where the future is. (using new GDAL/OGR drivers if possible)
  * I half expect more problems to show up as the shell script version of
 this module has a number of issues, even on Linux.
