Sash is probably used the most, but the minix shell
is also used a lot.

That code base supports full VM processors as well as
MMUless. Bash works on all those VM targets.

I have used the minix shell alot on uClinux. I have only
ever used it on ColdFire targets. Did you get the latest
arm-elf toolchain yet?  And I don't recall your last
email, but do you have the latest uClinux-dist?
