It seems that this is a bug in Perl's Configure.  The Configure  
script sets newsh temporarily to "/bin/ksh" when it tests if ksh  
should be used/avoided, but later the symlink test blindly uses  
$newsh.  So the test always fails if /bin/ksh doesn't exist, and the  
external command "test" is selected.
