While it (presumably) bounced, I did also get feedback from the
submitter in private mail a while later: it was still needed.
At the time it looked like having IRIX use pdksh for pkgsrc instead of
its own shell was the best way forward, but that apparently didn't
work in circumstances that are no longer clear now.
The current tools.IRIX.mk sets the shell to /bin/ksh, but apparently
that isn't any better.
If tinkering with this, mind PR 39524, which is probably outdated but
might not be.
