I love how OpenBSD commands keep evolving over time. Thanks for the
suggestion. I've updated the page.

Somebody mentioned this on IRC the other day (maybe you?), but I
didn't figure out what was going on then. I just now triaged the
issue: in ksh(1), before exec'ing a new process, it resolves all
symlinks of pwd. Try for yourself:

# ksh
# mkdir a
# ln -s a b
# cd b
# ksh -c pwd

That's pretty weird behavior, but maybe there's an interesting reason
for it; I'll poke around tomorrow and see if I can figure it out.

In any case, I've worked around it now in the install script and
tested on a fresh OpenBSD 6.3 install, so you should now be able to

# ftp -o - | sh

Let me know how it goes, and thanks for the report.
