They should be close,  at least based on the same thing at one point.
The minix shell in the dist (user/sh) is still the original multi-source
version,  not a single file as in busybox.  It has fixes to ensure it doesn't
corrupt it's parents stack among others,  can't remember them all. I suspect
quite a few of the fixes are not in the busybox version.
