Hello All,

While testing configure scripts for mtools, I made patches to get dash
(a minimalistic POSIX-compliant shell) to compile for UnixPC.

With these patches, dash can be configured and compiled using Mike
Haertel's UnixPC cross compiler.

Details at http://alain.knaff.lu/UnixPC/dash.html

This should make it easier to configure and compile further free
software on the UnixPC itself. Indeed, the stock shell of UnixPC lacks
POSIX compliance, and doesn't properly run GNU autoconf scripts of most
packages.

Enjoy,

Alain
