ksh from base...

I still have local patches to drop support for k&r/c89 unices from circa
1992 and in general refresh the code. I wanted to drop bourne build
variation (/bin/sh) from ksh too as this code is dead, we already ship
ash for this. The domain for retro-unices is already covered by mksh.
Last time I discussed it with mirbsd korn shell upstream, they noted
that mksh is developed for gcc1-gcc3.
