Re: pkg/48075 (compilation of devel/gtexinfo fails)

I have tracked this down to where adding a single space to the script
works around the bug in pdksh that this is triggering (or fixes the
bad syntax that sh & ksh accept)

I just tried this on a NetBSD 5.1 i386 machine, and if you set:             /usr/pkg/bin/pdksh
TOOLS_PLATFORM.ksh?=            /usr/pkg/bin/pdksh
(or just edit the texti2dvi script to use /usr/pkg/bin/pdksh) the same
problem occurs.

Editing the texi2dvi and adding a single space as shown in this diff
makes pdksh work:

           || (grep 'No \.aux file' "$in_noext.log" \

I think this should be re-assigned to the maintainer of pdksh.
Perhaps meanwhile the line:

REPLACE_SH+=            util/texi2dvi

should be conditionalized to avoid this issue at least on SunOS.
