I think Jerome is working on getting v3.1.0 ready for the freeze.

In terms of 3.0.2 I think the dependency could just be dropped from
the .deb - provided sh or bash is present, things will be fine.

In 3.1.0, ksh is checked for in the configure script as a last resort.
I don't know if this will cause it to become a dependency automatically?

Jerome: I have no problem in removing ksh references and producing a 3.0.3
and/or 3.1.1 if it makes life easier... does it help you? You decide,
it is maybe 15 minutes work for me this evening, but I won't touch it
if the churn makes more work for you.
