I see you've asked this on the Fink list too:

Since you're using Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, the rest of us mere mortals  
probably won't be able to help much. Of course, if you can come up  
with a solution that we can implement in the port, while remaining  
compatible with 10.4 and 10.3, we'll be happy to apply it. Though  
since you're experiencing the same problem with this software with  
both Fink and MacPorts, it's clearly not a problem isolated to either  
Fink or MacPorts, so you should report it instead to the authors of  
the coreutils software. I guess that would be the GNU group.
