I have a script to build the AT&T ksh93 if you want to work on beating it into
package form. We use ksh93 and some other things for a build system where
I work, and it has been running quite well. I am busy enough with Cygwin emacs
stuff as it is, and have no time for working on a ksh93 package.
I also have an email from the ksh authors with the conditions for releasing a
Cygwin package for ksh93. I don't think there was anything objectionable --
they just want patches fed back to them and that sort of thing.
ksh is actually part of a UNIX portability framework that includes all sorts of
other things, both commands and libraries. But you don't need most of the
other stuff if you just want to package ksh.
