Yep, binary is named sh in and checks for $(BIN).1 so
we get sh.1 which is for lksh instead of mksh.1. Simple solution is to
make the binary named mksh, then have a postinst that either

1) symlinks: ln -sf mksh sh; ln -sf mksh.1 sh.1
2) renames: mv mksh sh; mv mksh.1 sh.1

Any thoughts on which approach would be better? I know most desktop
distros do sh symlinking, but I don't know if that's the best approach
for stali where we probably won't have any other sh options in the
first place.
