Follow-up Comment #4, bug #36677 (project octave):

I suppose you should work around this for now.  The working behavior of
canonicalize_file_name is defined here
(http://www.gnu.org/software/libc/manual/html_node/Symbolic-Links.html).  It
is very clear that the function should return an empty string if the file name
object does not exist.  We should probably me moving in the direction of
getting the platforms to do the same thing.  In this case, I don't exactly
know why you aren't pulling the gnulib module.
