gstat collision between sysutils/coreutils and base gstat

Traditionally we've tended to use the 'g' prefix for GNU utilities;
gmake, gtar etc, but apparently with stat that is a problem , due
to the different gstat utility in base.
I'm reluctant to simply rename the coreutils to gnu- prefixes, because
that would upset quite a lot of things!
We either need to:
1) Rename to coreutils to gnu- like most of the rest of the non-GNU
world and deal with the breakage (!)
2) Make gstat an OPTION, off by default
3) Be horribly inconsistent and rename gstat to gnustat
