Solaris: du -g returns illegal option.
FreeBSD: du -g returns illegal option.
NetApp ONTAP: du is not a valid command.
AIX: du -g is valid and documented:
            Calculates the block count in GB units rather than the
default 512-byte units. The output values for the
            disk usage would be in floating point numbers as value of
each unit in bytes is significantly high.

It's not as resounding of an argument, but, there's at least one.
