CVS commit: pkgsrc/shells/mksh

Module Name:    pkgsrc
Committed By:   ahoka
Date:           Sat Oct 25 18:58:14 UTC 2008

Modified Files:
        pkgsrc/shells/mksh: Makefile distinfo

Log Message:
Update to version R36.

Major changes:

* Digital UNIX (DEC OSF/1) V2.0 (MIPS) is now supported using the DEC C and 
ucode toolchain. (We could not run the testsuite, though.)
* The â??-Qâ?? option to is gone without replacement.
* A new option can be enabled by adding -DMKSH_BINSHREDUCED to $CPPFLAGS, 
intended mostly for Debian. This option adds extra code to determine whether 
mksh(1) is called as sh or -sh and switch to â??set -o posixâ?? mode if so, 
disabling brace expansion and some security features, because legacy scripts, 
such as debconf, depend on such reduced functionality /bin/shs.
* Input lines beginning with an IFS character of IFS white space are no longer 
pushed into the history. Some other, less surprising, changes were also made to 
both Emacs and Vi command line editing modes.
* The arc4random.c contributed file is now stored with the RCS version number 
appended, and has been updated.
