With the Hi-Tech C compiler I did get a number of simple Unix programs to run, and even found a copy of CP/M UUCP (which was overlaid to to hell and back).

Cromemco Inc sold Cromix, a "unix like os" for their Z80 based System 
Three in 1979. It had many of the unix commands but some had longer
names and no UUCP. Written from scratch AFAIK. I believe you can still
find a copy online and run it under a Z80 emulator.
