Is there a gnu version of stat? I have a version of stat on my Mac, provided
I suppose by Apple, in /usr/local/bin/stat, but I wanted a version that
would have a good chance of being available on Linux platforms. I thought
that a Macports version would most likely be a gnu version, if it exists.

I tried looking for stat in this newsgroup, but there didn't seem to be
anything appropriate. I also tried port search stat and got lots of
irrelevant hits. Is there a better way of searching?
