I don't think that would work. You can e.g. not simply use "/bin/zsh"
because it will break "libtool". You have to create a symlink "sh"
which points to "zsh". This will convince "zsh" to start in "sh"
compatibility mode and "libtool" works.

And "pdksh" is a package which needs to be built during bootstrap.

        Kind regards
