Paul, is there something in
gnulib I can just link to?

Sorry, I've lost context. What function do you want? canonicalize_file_name? set_program_name_and_installdir? I'm not a big fan of the latter, as it's a portability heavyweight (it makes lots of assumptions and might not be applicable to Emacs).

I still think it'd be better to put the dump into the executable itself, which can be done portably simply by linking a big C character array into the executable. in the long run this will be better for users (and for us) than fiddling with portability minefields like set_program_name_and_installdir.
