Is this just the new .sh.op_ variable or something else?

We use the buildksh93.sh script Olga provided. Using that script
ast-ksh builds and the feedback I have from my staff is very positive
with grep enabled on Linux, in par of the level the buildksh93 script
produced with the .extrabuiltins patch option to move the grep command
to libcmd in previous versions of ast-open.
We're very very happy with this :)

Testing of the iconv and xargs builtins will be done this week, too.
