I believe having a pkill/pgrep program which looks and feels like other
operating systems' pkill/pgrep (such as solaris) is a good thing. zap,
skill, ps|grep|awk|kill and friends do their job, but pkill/pgrep is
easier to use.

I think we should clean this up and consider importing it into the tree or
perhaps provide it as a port first.
