OK, let's just say I like the GNU guys and would like them to know if
there are any bugs in their stuff, otherwise how will it improve?

And mawk: development halted years ago.  Wouldn't any awk bugs I find
be better reported for gawk?

So, how does one find the rest of the packages on one's system that
"Conflicts:" with genuine GNU alternative packages.

mawk, and mailx.  So, out with it, what are the rest?
