Ah, okay. But on the other hand, early review is good too ☺

I just saw the point of the build script being a Korn Shell
script being rised and thought to try whether it works with
mksh as build dependency, and if not, maybe whether I could
change the script so it does because, obviously, I know the
mksh specifics best ;)

OK. I can test on i386 and m68k ;)

>prefer to work out the dependencies one, by one, as you already found

Sure. As I said, cowbuilder helps with this.

Good luck,
FWIW, I'm quite impressed with mksh interactively. I thought it was much
*much* more bare bones. But it turns out it beats the living hell out of
ksh93 in that respect. I'd even consider it for my daily use if I hadn't
wasted half my life on my zsh setup. :-) -- Frank Terbeck in #!/bin/mksh
