Hi Doug,

I have WRKDIRPREFIX=/usr/ports/works in /etc/make.conf. I'm running a
8-STABLE amd64. Do you need me to generate a build log for you to
further investigate this problem?

BTW, did you run 'find' to search for ksh? The binary must be somewhere
in the WRKSRC. It might be helpful to know the path of ksh.
