At one point I suggested enhancing 'pathcheck --dos' to take the place of
doschk, but as I have never had enough time to actually implement that, it
has not happened yet.  I am still of the opinion that coreutils would be a
good place for such a utility, either independently, or as an option to
the existing pathcheck, but somebody has to do the work.
