Somewhere right around here is where I am going to ask why we are
entertaining the idea of a BeOS port in the first place... it's
evidently not Unix or even trying hard to be close to Unix.

Bad enough to have dozens of #ifdef __BEOS__ already uglifying the code;
I don't intend to hold still for people saying "you can't use link()".
