Yes. As you say, if we do this (and I think it's so ugly that I'm not
convinced we want to), it should be done in git-sh-setup-script _once_
instead of editing every single script.

Most everything includes git-sh-setup-script anyway by now.

However, what are the features that break the default apple tools anyway? 
Maybe we should avoid using them? OSX clearly comes with "cp" and "xargs" 
regardless, what are the flags that don't work with their cruddy versions?

[ Rant mode on: ..and who the hell is the idiot at Apple who includes the
  old crappy BSD stuff? They already use gcc, so it's totally pointless to
  have a NIH thing, when the GNU utilities are just _better_. Maybe 
  somebody can ask Apple to get with the program and not live in the dark 
  ages any more. ]
