GNU userland is already available in a big way with Nexenta and partly 
available in OpenIndiana. GNU awk, GNU tar, gcc, GNU make, yada yada.

But if you want to change the way things are done in /etc, please go 
elsewhere. Even in Linux land, things are in a big flux at the moment 
with /etc although certain things like network configuration are not 
changing but distro differ from distro in things like that. I don't see 
a problem with OpenIndiana differing too.
