Hey Csanyi,

I am not familliar with what you are trying to do but I thought I would do
what I could to help,

There are 2 packages that contain a binary called 'cu':

[alan at ditto ~]$ pkgfile -s cu

You can use pkgfile to find any binary or file that you need as I did above.

Hope this helps,

Alan Jenkins
