I think that's coreutils in RedHat, which contains textutils-2.1,
fileutils-4.1.11, sh-utils-2.0.15.

In RedHat 9 and while the 'command --help' doesn't show the -N
syntax, the commands do support it.

I think removing this would break a ton of scripts.

Also, how many older systems support the new syntax?
