That's not quite right IMO.  GNUstep is also an official part of GNU.

OTTOMH, one finds BSD-based psproc and mail or mailx tools on most
GNU/Linux systems and they aren't official GNU.  OpenSSL is another
pretty common (and mildly irritatingly-licensed) non-GNU part, but
GNUTLS can do much of the same work.

Hope that helps,
