   but that would install *each* other command with a prefix of `g' too,
   which is NOT what I meant...

But BSD systems also have ls/cat/..., so it doesn't make sense to have
a special case just for factor.  Such prefixes only make sense for
non-GNU systems, and coreutils is after all for the GNU system.
