Re: shells/ast-ksh fails to build on NetBSD

Tests are also not too bad:
OK:       175
FAIL:      21
SKIP:       0

This is on 8.99.24 amd64. Apart from the few removed math functions, no other attempt for porting was done; some of the failures are in maths tests, likely due to the removal of these functions.

As strange as this may seem, the github version compiles almost from the box. The required build system works straight, without any problems, using python3.6. The 'ninja -C build' link phase fails with missing references to the l(for long)  versions of some 6-7 floating point functions, which I just took away from the math.c module. It appears we have all these functions, but not the l variants.

I guess the best would be to completely rework the package making use of the latest version. I've tried on numerous occasions to compile ast-ksh with the same result (  I tried to figure out what was going on, but the 'iffe' script was beyond my reckoning... ).

As far as I can tell from the bulk results in,
the last release on which ast-ksh worked was NetBSD 6. My build on -8

Any ideas?

I saw that our ksh version is from 2012, while there seems to be a
newer one (from 2017) available on
