Default Nicer Prompt with ksh on 5.0

Hi there,

as I am trying out NetBSD 5.0 I would like to use a little more functional prompt in the ksh. My problem: ksh under NetBSD is fairly different from ksh under OpenBSD.

While under OpenBSD all I had to do was putting something like:

export PS1='$PWD $ '
in my ~.profile and

XTerm*loginShell: true
in my ~.Xdefaults, under NetBSD this doesn't work at all.

So, I know it's a question on a very low level, but I haven't found any working hint up to now: Can you give me a hint on how I can change the prompt of the ksh?
