The Microport ksh was compiled to only support the "vi" mode.  There
was a newer version that supported both "vi" and "emacs" modes posted
on the Microport BBS (R.I.P).  The executable *is* on the "BBS disk set"
avaliable from Microport (Last I heard, $US 20.00)

You are doing all the right things, but the software is ignoring you.  Get 
the "good" version and it will work (But, why do you want emacs mode anyway?)
