That was exactly what I had planned using the debian package, I didn't
realize it was that simple. If it's just two downloads, then that
should be fine. Fedora link above shows three??? Also, I have not seen
a need for a gcc patch.

I think I'd prefer the original AT&T ksh noting the read limitation in
pdksh. I rarely use that syntax, prefering backtics or $(..), but I
could see it causing problems for some. I'll give it a go anyway. JDK
build is only 12 SBU now!
Thanks for the links.
