Back in 2017 a new project was created which aimed to test the performance and executable sizes of core OpenBSD tools against the GNU core utilities (coreutils) running on Linux. The project has since switched to using FreeBSD code as its base and it is gaining traction, providing FreeBSD's central, command line utilities on GNU/Linux distributions. "The project began in October 2017 and initially ported code from the OpenBSD source tree. The original objective was to see how much work was involved and to compare relative sizes of built executables with those found in GNU coreutils and other projects. In an effort to gain more featureful BSD commands and to possibly work more easily with dotfiles for users on MacOS X systems, the project started over by porting the commands from FreeBSD in April 2021." People interested in testing the FreeBSD versions of these utilities on Linux can visit the project's source repository.
