Let me reiterate that the size of canonicalize is plain absurd:
150+ files to implement a single function which takes ~160 lines of C code.
These files includes things like hash.c and fchownat.c (why?!)
as well as __BOTH__ malloc.c and xmalloc.c.

For the record, I am _not_ using `canonicalize-lgpl'.

I have been reluctant to pull this code bloat into clisp so far,
but if it does provide a clear advantage of handling cygwin symlinks on
pure win32 builds, I will reconsider.
