That is a function definition. The Bourne shell on Ultrix 4.2 does not
support shell functions.

 (1) Check if ksh or bash is available on your system. You do this
     with the command 'type' or with 'whereis'.
	Use this shell; i.e., type 'ksh target ultrix-4.2' and 'ksh

 (2) If you don't have such a shell, get the bash sources from a ftp
     server near you and compile them. (Reduce the problem to a known
     one... :-)
