I believe so. After modifying PATH, command -v returns:

    Solaris tools:
         sed: /usr/gnu/bin/sed
         awk: /usr/gnu/bin/awk
        grep: /usr/gnu/bin/grep

(This was added to my scripts to confirm).

Maybe Git would benefit from SED, AWK and GREP variables like PERL.

Send over your authorized_keys. You will connect with:

    esunshine@ -p 1523

I'm in a dynamic IP address block. You will have to ping me on
occasion to get the updated IP address.

Some other machines you may be interested in:

  * PowerMac G5, PPC big-endian with OS X 10.5 (port 1522)
  * MacBook late 2012, x86_64 with OS X 10.9 (port 1524)
  * Intel Goldmont with SHA extensions (port 1526)

Andy Polyakov uses the PowerMac for tuning his ASM used in OpenSSL.

If you want to speedup SHA-1 (re: unaligned accesses) then try the
Goldmont machine. SHA-1 runs at 1.8 cycles per byte on Goldmont.
