I presume that most of the relevant differences are for users / developers and
not sysadmins? It's worth noting that GNU coreutils, tar, bash, and a load of
other things are in the ports repository. I wonder if it's worth having a
gnu-userland metaport, perhaps with something like the Solaris approach of
sticking them all in a different tree so that you can just add that to the
start of your PATH and have all of the GNU tools work by default.
