Ah, yes!  I have added some test to Gash and this

    basename -- /

failed, producing the empty string, where coreutils' basename returns

Gash "simply" (there is som if'ing involved) calls Guile's basename,
which disagrees here and returns "" for "/".

I'm assuming that this is expected behaviour for Guile?... so I
special-cased this for Gash' basename.
