ah...then seems that the current code depends on features being in sh
that the 1.5.2 sh doesn't have.  1.5.2's sh contains rev of
trap.c, whereas code to support the things it looks like it's doing
weren't added until 1.26 and weren't pulled up.

what happens if you just try to build the sh in your -current source
right now?
