Or, add a minimalist autconf type configure support to check for 
the easiest set of directives.  Ie, grep for sigjmp_buf in the
appropriate header files, look for specific header files to include
or not, the functions that can be defined or not to give hints, if not
fully working support.

Or, you might assume a basic SYSV if you don't know it already.
What percentage of operating systems will survive on sysv?  Though,
admins with those types of os's probably know enough to port the code.

BTW, why do you still use getwd?  Actually, looks like you only use
it mod_include.c, yet you have to define against it to getcwd for 7
different systems.
