Ah, so version would be openbsd20110909?  I'm asking because in your
first mail you wrote 'ksh-openbsd-20110909', and Slackware package name
convention doesn't allow hyphens in version segment.  Package name
scheme looks like this:


Only name segment can have additional hyphens, because pkgtools removes
three last segments in the string to figure out program name.  If
package would be named as


pkgtools would treat is as ksh-openbsd.

So your version should be openbsd20110909 or openbsd_20110909, but not
openbsd-20110909.  And the program name stays the same as it is now
