I'm trying to set up a cronjob that will use my bash_profile. I need to check new files out of CVS and then build them. All the environment variables are set in my bash_profile, but I can't get cron to load it up before starting the cronjob.

In the program I output a list of the environment variables and BASH is always set to /bin/sh instead of /bin/bash. I can change the actual SHELL setting, but it doesn't seem to work for BASH. Any ideas?
