Bug#3137: pdksh is in /bin

Package: pdksh
Version: 5.2.3

I see that the recent discussion, which appeared to me to conclude
that pdksh should be in /usr/bin, doesn't appear to have been filed as
a bug, so I'm doing that now.

If a link is desired in /bin then (a) it should be justified by the
existence of a significant number of ksh-specific scripts starting
#!/bin/ksh and (b) it must be a symlink.
