In case its useful to anyone...  I ran into problems w/ pdksh on solaris 9
when built 64-bit for use with, among other things, libtool.  It's internal
memory "pool" management has a bug.  I've been meaning to track down the
error but reducing ICELLS in alloc.c to 0, such that it always mallocs
instead of carving from a pool, the bug is avoided.
