<< findutils' listfile.c currently uses a home-rolled get_link_name_at which
blindly changes the working directory, and calls xalloc_die on allocation
failure.  Perfect candidate for xreadlinkat, to be more efficient on platforms
with native readlinkat.  And xreadlinkat implies areadlinkat. >>

This module is now implemented in gnulib, so findutils should use it.
