Bug Description

I compiled & installed Byobu & when I try to launch it I get:

'$ byobu
readlink: illegal option -- f
usage: readlink [-n] [file ...]
usage: dirname path
usage: dirname path'

I see from looking at the archives that this problem was brought to attention back in 2012 but I'm still seeing it.

late 2010 MacBook 2.4GHz 4GB RAM running OS X Yosemite 10.5.5...

After reading up on this I decided to install coreutils & hey presto, it's now working.

Sorry for the noise...
