Wow, isn't this in the FAQ?

Yes, but you need to build it for yourself.
Look at your favorite mirror for:

Unpack common in an empty dir, this will create a subdir 'src'.

$ cd src

unpack ash here.
modify: ash/builtins.def to include: getoptscmd 	getopts
instead of: getoptscmd -j	getopts

$ cd ..
$ mkdir build
$ cd build
$ ../src/configure --prefix=/usr 2>&1 tee log.config
$ make

 and if all finishes without error, 
copy build/ash/sh-new.exe to /bin/sh.exe
