Actually /usr/bin/posix/sh is the default on UnixWare as of 2.60
Prior to 2.60 it used /bin/ksh
I did not specify a CONFIG_SHELL on the configure command line.

/usr/bin/posix/sh is a symbolic link to /u96/bin/sh
/bin/ksh is  a symbolic link to /u95/bin/ksh
/u95/bin/ksh and /u95/bin/sh are hard linked.
Same problem with /bin/ksh
