Re: Initial MirBSD support for pkgsrc

â I think ULTRIX and some early OSF/1 donât. On the other hand,
those have a Korn shell where the print builtin is portable
(print -r -- "$foo" is the equivalent) but I donât know whether
nbmake supports using a shell other than /bin/sh for executing
(mirmake uses mksh hardcoded from compile time, gmake interprets
the make variable ${SHELL}).

Thank you for adding the support code, much appreciated.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
