What's the reason for BR'ing /bin/ksh?

I can't imagine a single reason for doing so under Linux.


I took that from the specfile that comes with graphviz and didn't think to much about it - it also was there since I took over graphviz... Maybe John knows why!?

Tritely, because ksh was invented here


;)



and its too hard convincing people here to use
bash. As I recall, iffe depends on it.


Well, I'd suggest you to extend your configure script to detect a
suitable shell (I guess you actually are looking for shell supporting
for some features which were missing in the original Bourne shell 10
years+ ago),
or FE should simply sed the /bin/ksh to /bin/bash or even /bin/sh from
the sources inside of the rpm spec.

Is this a blocker for this release?

To be honest I'm feeeling some burnout and this is not the technical issue that I want to work on....
