    Resolution: Won't Fix

Since we have runnable jar files now, there is no need to rewrite the ksh scripts. Closing
the issue with resolution "won't fix".

> The ksh scripts in the frameworks directory are written in a way which
> is not totally portable. They use a syntax that is specific to ksh and
> not understood by the standard Bourne shell. This prevents some
> variants of Unix from running the scripts when you have the scripts'
> path in your PATH environment variable.
> These commands work:
>   ksh /path/to/scripts/ij.ksh
>   bash /path/to/scripts/ij.ksh
> These commands might not work on some platforms:
>   sh /path/to/scripts/ij.ksh
>   /path/to/scripts/ij.ksh
>   ij.ksh   # might not work even if /path/to/scripts is in PATH
> The syntax that is not portable is
>   export VAR=value
> Rewriting it to
>   VAR=value
>   export VAR
> would make the scripts portable to all shells in the Korn and Bourne
> shell family.
