I've fixed the version.c and bootstrap problems, but I don't think we
ever settled on the right way to deal with not having `program_name`
defined at build time.

If you are on a glibc system, I think the library provides the necessary
symbol and you should be able to build a working libposix from the topic
branch after a git pull. Otherwise you'll have to link in the progname
module, or similar to resolve it... until we come up with a blessed
method for dealing with it properly.
