These are the GNU text file (actually, file contents) processing
utilities. Most of these programs have significant advantages over
their Unix counterparts, such as greater speed, additional options,
and fewer arbitrary limits.
The programs that can be built with this package are: cat, cksum, comm,
csplit, cut, expand, fmt, fold, head, join, md5sum, nl, od, paste, pr,
sort, split, sum, tac, tail

* aclocal.m4 (fp_PROG_CC_STDC): Include sys/stat.h in test program
so that DYNIX/ptx V4.1.3 doesn't use `-Xc -D__EXTENSIONS__' -- with
those options on that system, sys/stat.h gets compile errors.
