Thanks Håvard. I thought a binary built on 6.1_STABLE might work on 7
but I wasn't sure if it would cause trouble later on.

I see that Joerg has done a lot of work since with ast-ksh. Perhaps his
work fixes the problems I had?

In the meantime I have been using mksh. Thorsten Glaser was more than
helpful with questions I had. There was a thread some years ago
suggesting mksh should replace NetBSD's own ksh (pdksh). Perhaps this
might be reconsidered?
