Yes, thanks :) I have gathered that, but I was wondering what is
included in this set of "userland" and is there an easy way (automated)
to gather the information about the versions of the software installed
instead of finding each command and then appending -v or -V? Or is
there a place that I am missing that lists these packages and versions?
For instance, FreeBSD 5.2.1 comes with:
grep (GNU grep) 2.4d
A version of the core utilities
