        (setq insert-directory-program "gls") 

still seems to do the job – and it silences the report. This "gls" is indeed 
GNU ls (8.17). But… 'emacs -Q' shows the report on ls and starts the dired 
buffer with:

  total used in directory 1149800 available 159246008
  drwxr-xr-x+ 92 pete   admin      23188 29 Jul 22:50 .

When I execute

        (setq insert-directory-program "gls") 

in *scratch* buffer, then the opened dired buffer starts with:

  insgesamt 574900
  drwxr-xr-x+ 92 pete  admin     23188 29. Jul 22:50 .

For both cases this is valid:

        dired-listing-switches is a variable defined in `dired.el'.
        Its value is "-al"

The latter output is from gls, the former from the ls emulation?
