We don't want to use a literal _tab, since when the DJGPP port runs on
Windows, it supports long file names, and can use foo.tab.c.  Thus the
use of pathconf.  (Btw, I still don't understand why using pathconf is
not TRT for the Posix systems as well.)

As for why the change I asked for in config.h is important, this has
to do with how the DJGPP port is configured and built.  I cannot
afford describing this here; if you are interested, please study
config.bat and config.sed that are parts of the DJGPP port (and which
I hope will be accepted by the maintainers to be held in the djgpp/
