Then Solaris 8 /bin/sh is not POSIX conformant.  However, you could try
if /bin/ksh has it.

Any particular reason for prefering t?csh over POSIX sh other than
habit?  I'm asking out of plain curiosity.

Anyway, nobody in this thread has offered the pythonic solution, so I'll
pretend I am on-topic :)

def remove_pyc_files(root_folder):
    for dirname, dirnames, filenames in os.walk(root_folder):
        for filename in filenames:
            if not filename.endswith('.pyc'): continue
            pathname = os.path.join(dirname, filename)
