Is there a native FreeBSD shell util for returning the time in seconds
since the Unix epoch?  date(1) doesn't seem to do this, only the
converse with the -r switch:

[6:05:51] munk at users /home/munk# date -r "1064293551"
Tue Sep 23 06:05:51 BST 2003

Just curious - I ended up making a simple C app that does the job.
