Can you replace this with "ps -elf" and try as indicated in my other email?

Under GNU/Linux the options would mean:
         -p, --preserve
         -R, --recursive
	 -P     same as `--no-dereference'

              never follow symbolic links

IEEE Std 1003.1, 2004 Edition says:
Take actions on any symbolic link specified as a source_file operand or any 
symbolic link encountered during traversal of a file hierarchy.
        -R  Copy file hierarchies.
        -p Duplicate the following characteristics of each source file
         time of last data modification and time of last access
         user ID and group ID
         file permission bits and the S_ISUID and S_ISGID bits.

so the use seems POSIX compliant to me.

Can you replace this with what Thomas suggested?
And then try again to bootstrap?
