Oh.. doh. I'm having trouble compiling ash anyway, it dies with:
mknodes.c:102: initializer element is not constant
static FILE *infp = stdin;
infp = stdin; at the very start of main, in that file.
Oh well, that seems to work. In any case, I'll put ash, byacc and
pmake in my public_html on master.debian.org.
