Portability problems fixed by Gnulib:
- This function is missing on some platforms:
mingw, MSVC 9, BeOS.
- This function does not allow for a NULL ‘resolved’ parameter on

- This function fails to detect trailing slashes on non-directories on
- This function fails to recognize non-directories followed ‘..’ on
