I don't know if enami's suggestion helped you or not. By the time I saw
his response I had already solved the problem by deleting /bin/ksh and
symlinking it to /usr/pkg/bin/bash and the whole thing compiled normally.
The original problem with ksh has been fixed already, so if you can get
as far as I did and update the sources again it will all work.
Except for the new problem with make, of course ;0) You need to use
vers 1.86 of /usr/src/usr.bin/make/var.c to avoid the latest bug.
