sh, sed, grep, awk and vi among others are very basic tools you can expect to find on any unix system.

readlink is not available on HP-UX. On other systems syntax may not be compatible.
For example on MacOSX http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1055671/how-can-i-get-the-behavior-of-gnus-readlink-f-on-a-mac
This is also true for other BSD variants.

I wasn't aware of this, sorry. I guess this issue should be closed then.
