Hello People:

I've got a couple amd64 boxes that started out live as 5.x but are
currently running 6.2-p6.  I can install ksh93 port on a fresh 6.x
install w/o problem but on these machines it fails thusly:

# portupgrade -b ksh93

I can build package on another 6.2 box and install w/o problem but I'd
like to figure this out.  I've been in contact with the port maintainer
and we're both stumped.  Any suggestions?

Best regards,
