I have no more.exe on my system...

In relation to sh.exe - I'd rather not include a build that's not part of Perl.

I've updated readme.os2 as follows:
If sh.exe can't be found in \bin; then use the PERL_SH_DIR environment variable to set the location with *forward slashes*. The recommended shell to use as sh.exe is available from (rename ash.exe to sh.exe)

You might also add text suggesting that those with firefix installed set PERL_SH_DIR to bootdrive:/moztools and edit lib\5.10.0\os2\ to specify EXECSHELL as one of 'ash', 'ksh' or 'pdksh'.

Have you tried perldoc on your system? Please see [perl #108872].
