There is no standard for ACLs.  It is a real maintenance nightmare.

We'd like to support ACLs portably (I have drafted some code along
those lines, but it's incomplete).  It's not as easy as it might
appear.  (Check out the Samba code that deals with ACLs.  Yeouch!)

In the meantime, some vendors have patches that work with their
particular platforms; that's an easier job.
