Interesting.  Despite your V7-provenance claim, it doesn't seem to
have persisted into either the FreeBSD boxes or the OpenBSD boxes I
have at hand.  Bringing in anything that involves GNU coreutils adds
it to the machine in question, but just kinda odd that those with a
tighter tie to "real" Unix would have dropped it.

Off to go read `man gptx` now...
