Funny, they're all compiled with gcc, and they seem to have a
"ports" or "packages" collection that appears to mostly be the gnu
system. Yes, tehre's a small core of BSD code, but most of the
programs on a standard BSD box (whether by number or by overall bytes)
tend to be GNU utilities and third-party GPL'd programs.
