Thanks.  Actually the best way to fix this is to use a 
.SHELL: name=ksh path=/bin/ksh etc
in say /etc/mk.conf 

I'm going to add a suitable entry to make for ksh so that all you need is
.SHELL: name=ksh
to select it.

Also, the code you are patching against is out of date - there are no
raw references to /bin/sh in the current code.

The change to is probably good - thanks.
