The CR for this is 6487582.
Basically, there is some trivial POSIX behavior (-E "" is permitted and
interpreted to mean "no eofstr", read the man page for xargs(1) for more
info) that can (and should) be applied to the /usr/bin/xargs version.
Then /usr/xpg6/bin/xargs can just be a link to /usr/bin/xargs
I suspect this will require a trivial fasttrack (primarily because of
the man page change), and I have drafted a simple fasttrack already.
The code and manual page changes are trivial.
