  1. So I started playing with BSD in VirtualBox a couple years ago and tried deploying it at work for a few appliance style machines that I administer. That effort came up short when I kept running into compatibility issues with the BSD userland tools. All my shell scripts are written in Bash and rely on GNU tools, the last problem I have yet to fix is re-implementing GNU 'readlink -f' which will return the full canonical path for a given file. How would I do this in FreeBSD without installing GNU tools or rolling my own utility in Python or Go?
