That's one way. I solved the GNU/BSD issue more comprehensively in github.com/ddopson/dotfiles. I have ~/bin/coreutils early in the path and there's small shims in there like github.com/ddopson/dotfiles/blob/master/bin/coreutils/tar that pick the correct executable based on linux vs Mac and if the COREUTILS environment variable is set
