I have just got around to building 5.003_11 on UnixWare2.1.1,
and I am glad to say that apart from one minor quirk, all the
tests pass OK.  The problem is related to a bug in the UW csh,
specifically the glob() builtin which has a bug.  Changing
config.sh to make d_csh='undef' results in a 100% clean build
and test.

The following small patch to patches/svr4.sh will work around
this automatically until SCO fix the problem.
