not ubase. ubase specifically exists for all programs that are inherently
not portable. All tools in ubase depend on Linux interfaces one way
or another.

Initially I wanted ubase to be portable across systems by providing an abstraction
layer for each of the system-specific operations and then implement
the backend for each target system. That was overkill and it has been
entirely abandoned.

sbase on other hand contains all the tools that can be implemented under
the POSIX specification and it does work on BSDs. Once upon a time I built
it on Plan9 with APE, not sure if it still builds.

It has been tested on various BSDs, Haiku, SCO UnixWare etc.
