Sun is fond of having ancient non-standard versions of commands be the
default, even though they have perfectly good stadard versions of them
in other directories.  You'll have much more luck if you put
/usr/xpg4/bin in your $PATH ahead of /usr/bin.  (And why is something
called "lid" installed as /usr/local/bin/gid?  sanity.sh thought it had
found GNU id, but obviously it found something else, instead.)
