Most Linux distributions may be able to do it, but most systems

While I love to beat M$ with Linux World Domination, my UNIX
environment is still rather large.
Sure we could have an alternate file for #include "sfio.h"
which wraps ATT-Research SFIO into glibc at systems having
sufficiently modern one.
