Oh that's a nice way to discard both the question and consideration for non-mainstream OSes (or should I say "anything non-linux" ?).

I ran many shell/perl/python/… scripts in BeOS and Haiku for years without much trouble.
Not that much as with people thinking using autofools makes their apps automagically portable but forget to test for libm.

I've ported mercurial to BeOS & Haiku, and, coïncidentally the only thing I had to change was exactly this #!/usr/bin/env python crap.
And it works very well (unlike git which was ported but is as unusable as on linux :p).
