Hello everyone,

here's an (untested) upgrade for mksh, which I am the upstream author of.
Feel free to point out =E2=80=9Cobvious=E2=80=9D errors to me (MirPorts are=
 a little dif-
ferent), test and commit. It's known to work with gcc on *BSD, GNU/Linux,
GNU/HURD, GNU/kFreeBSD, Darwin, Cygwin, Interix, Solaris. If you're inte-
rested in making it work on more platforms or with more compilers, please
contact me privately (I do not have access to other OSes, that's why, but
I'm actually interested in keeping it portable across =E2=80=9Csane=E2=80=
=9D *nixen).
