I have just released mksh R25b with compile fixes for
- older versions of MirBSD
- Cygwin

See http://mirbsd.mirsolutions.de/?mksh for details, as usual.

I'd still be glad if people make a package, because this means
users can install mksh directly during their Cygwin setup, and
also, there will be a binary package available.

The licences (I'm counting 4 different ones) in the source pak-
kage are all OSD compliant, but not all are OSI approved (due
to their brain-dead "licence proliferation committee"); I hope
this won't be a problem (it is none anyway if you bought a li-
cence for libcygwin1 from Redhat).

Thanks in advance!
