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.
