I'll see what docs are available at AT&T.
Maybe Glenn Fowler can put together a comprehensive overview.
But is /usr/doc/Cygwin/astksh-20030422-1.README the right place for such
Shouldn't information about the build process go into the source package
There is already some info in the CYGWIN-PATCHES/README file of the
source archive, but probably not enough.

That will require a change to the ksh Nmakefile, e.g.
if CC.HOSTTYPE = cygwin.*
SH = ksh93
ksh :LINK: ksh93
SH = ksh
I'll talk to Glenn about that.
