We're currently using (even before this patch) the fstatat() function
to detect if crossing a symlink puts us on a different drive.  I'd
definitely prefer for this to be "not our problem" by either using a
library to fill in these routines or upping the minimum supported Mac
OS X version.  That said, it's not that hard on Mac OS X to implement
a replacement for fstatat() using fcntl(F_GETPATH).
