(I now can see The ExSolarinator grin once again :-)
There is a couple more of vendor utilities that you should exchange if
you want to use the Linux etc. sources with least possible changes.
Among them the findutils, bash (install bash as /bin/bash), diff
(Stun's diff / patch doen't know about unified context diff; diff
has bugs that can turn your live into hell), GNU M4, gawk and some
more. In fact, do yourself a favour and install all the GNU stuff.
