Thanks for your suggestion and interest in this topic.

There are at least two other Bash scripts 
which are referenced in the set of 
Wireshark Makefile.nmake files.

tools/make-dissector-reg
     (This is presumably not normally executed since 
      Python is probably installed and a Python program 
      is used instead).

make-tapreg-dotc
     This script is definitely used; 
     (Without igncr I get an error when this 
     script runs as part of the Make).

So: my feeling is that it's best to use igncr whenever Bash is used so as to 
ensure that any current Bash script used in the Make (or new ones added in 
the future) will run.
