I'm actually in favor of adding GNULY_CORRECT too, since you
occasionally run into self extracting shellscripts and the like that
assume GNU behavior (usually when installing Linux apps that come as a
giant bash sharchive). I don't think I've ever run into this specific
problem, but there is a definate possability and getting those shell
scripts to work is hard enough without having some way to override the
correct (but incompatable) behaviour.
