I've managed to port the FSF fileutils version 3.2, textutils version
1.3, and shellutils 1.6 to DJGPP.  Doing this required fixing a few
bugs in libc.a, and implementing some functions that were not
previously implemented.  I'm going to post the changes to libc.a over
the next few days, in the hopes that it will help others and
eventually get included into the standard DJGPP distribution.

Compiling these programs also required patching a few of the FSF
source files, but the patches were minimal (mostly text vs. binary
issues).  If you're interested in the patches or a copy of the
binaries, let me know.

The combination of fileutils 3.2, textutils 1.3, and shellutils 1.6
gives the following fairly impressive list of unix programs for your
DOS machine:

basename.exe  dir.exe	    ll.exe	  printf.exe	test.exe
cat.exe	      dirname.exe   logname.exe	  rm.exe	touch.exe
chmod.exe     du.exe	    ls.exe	  rmdir.exe	tr.exe
cmp.exe	      env.exe	    mkdir.exe	  sleep.exe	tty.exe
comm.exe      expand.exe    mv.exe	  sort.exe	unexpand.exe
cp.exe	      expr.exe	    nl.exe	  split.exe	uniq.exe
csplit.exe    fold.exe	    paste.exe	  sum.exe	vdir.exe
cut.exe	      head.exe	    pathchk.exe	  tac.exe	wc.exe
date.exe      id.exe	    pr.exe	  tail.exe	whoami.exe
dd.exe	      install.exe   printenv.exe  tee.exe	yes.exe
df.exe	      join.exe
