	/bin/csh is the same as /bin/tcsh. /bin/csh should be the 4.4BSD csh, which is currently in ports (shells/44bsd-csh). This is useful when, for example, one needs a statically-linked csh instead of tcsh (which requires ncurses, libcrypt, and libc).
	Use a FreeBSD system.
	Build shells/44bsd-csh and move the resulting binary to /bin/csh.
