But we are talking about the ksh builtin echo command, and the echo(1) was
referenced by the ksh manpage, so this is the syntax for the builtin echo of
ksh. And my tests also were in ksh. If one sais "ksh", the OS and style of
executable doesn't matter, as long as you use the builtins. And if everything
is linked dynamically, you might not want to bother about /bin/echo, which
also is no more useable in this case (if linked dynamically)

$ ldd /bin/echo  =>    /lib32/

And it often seems to be :)
