blockdev? I have some doubts...
What do you do with fsck backends w/o fsck and w/o OS support?
mkswap works under Windows?
How did you link sln statically?

Since clear is available in ncurses, we shouldn't add another one,
even if it's a script.
flock won't work w/o advisory locks.
ipcrm and ipcs are part of the cygwin package and I'd rather keep them
logger is part of inetutils and I'd like to keep it there.
