GNU libfetish was a software library with a collection of subroutines used by GNU coreutils.

It was originally intended to be an internal common archive library for GNU fileutils, GNU textutils and GNU sh-utils along with some other miscellaneous utilities.

Copies of libfetish.a sources were distributed with each respective package until they were merged into GNU coreutils on Sunday, September 1, 2002 [1]

The library name came from combining all three packages FilEutils TextutIls SH-util to spell the word, fetish.

This internal archive library was renamed libcoreutils.a on Monday, April 18, 2005 [2]

You can find the old packages from the GNU Alpha archive [3]
