Oh.. doh.  I'm having trouble compiling ash anyway, it dies with:

mknodes.c:102: initializer element is not constant

which is:

static FILE *infp = stdin;

Temporary workaround... 
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.
