It's on my systems running coreutils-5.2.1, but this is a valid point,
it may not be present on old versions of coreutils (or whatever package
groupadd used to come from before coreutils was merged). It is present
on my old RedHat system, but marked as something that RedHat added, so
apparently at some point it was accepted into the main package as well.
