To be fully cross-platform compatible and functional, there are two ways:
1) deliver grep, find, sed and xargs together with kdevplatform to make sure
they exist in each thinkable case (that would also make the solaris check
 - pros: no big changes in the implementation
 - cons: project size increases ;; much more code to be maintained
2) implement an own implementation of that toolchain
 - pros: independent of external tools
 - cons: much work for initial implementation ;; (eventually) slower

I'm sure I forgot some important points, but I think it would be good to
discuss this topic about the toolchain.
