FWIW, pmake compiles on FreeBSD, but doesn't seem to actually work. It
keeps complaining that it doesn't know how to make pmake...

I was trying to use it to build ash, but gave up and hacked the rules file
to use the FreeBSD make. (I wanted ash for MAKEDEV, which of course, doesn't
work with bash...)
