FYI, mingw is another relatively-active porting target that lacks fchdir, which 
would benefit from a good fchdir replacement.  As to whether you consider mingw 
a reasonable porting target, that's a different question (native Windows tends 
to be quite far from POSIX to make it a very difficult porting task).
