 Module Name:	pkgsrc
 Committed By:	maya
 Date:		Fri Dec 29 06:59:54 UTC 2017

 Modified Files:
 	pkgsrc/devel/libuuid: Makefile.common

 Log Message:
 libuuid: stopgap fix for the freeze: use ksh as a configure shell

 it looks like autoconf did not generate enough "fi"s in the script.
 ksh seems to tolerate it. this should be investigated further.

 I'm having problems isolating the cause, I used ksh in the meantime.
