FAQ

of things that need open source replacements:

more

I'd be tempted to just "ln -s less more", but then I setenv PAGER less myself.

sed
tail
printf

I believe the ksh93 project has replacements available for these. Have you
contacted them?

patch

I think GNU patch (which is the descendant of the original Larry Wall patch)
is the only sane choice here - it's what /usr/bin/patch points to in OpenSolaris
now, after many many years of customers complaining our patch was incompatible
with many patch files in the wild.
