Indeed, the $SHELL variable looks to be the problem:

$ echo $PATH
/usr/src/VirtualBox-5.1.20/tools/linux.x86/bin:/usr/src/VirtualBox-5.1.20/kBuild/bin/linux.x86:/home/tc/.local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/apps/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/etc/sysconfig/tcedir/ondemand

$ which kmk_ash
/usr/src/VirtualBox-5.1.20/kBuild/bin/linux.x86/kmk_ash

$ echo $SHELL
/bin/sh

..but shouldn't "source ./env.sh" take care of that?

What is the best way to set $SHELL, so that "kmk all" works?
