 Unfortunately the fix implemented above had a small bug in it. Instead of
 just renaming the binary, the symlink under
 {{{/opt/local/libexec/gnubin}}} was renamed to {{{gnucut}}} as well.

 This means that users with {{{/opt/local/libexec/gnubin}}} at the head of
 their path are actually running the BSD version when they execute
 {{{cut}}} ({{{/usr/bin/cut}}}) rather than the GNU version as intended.

 The fix is to change the name of the symlink back to {{{cut}}}. I've
 submitted a PR to make the proposed change. To summarise the fix means we
 will have the binary installed at {{{/opt/local/bin/gnucut}}} and a
 symlink pointing to the binary at {{{/opt/local/libexec/gnubin/cut}}}.
