Historically, getcwd() has been SysV and getwd() has been BSD; hybrids
either provide both or, more usually, the SysV version which itself is
most often implemented as a piped response from /bin/pwd.

We could add HAVE_GETWD, HAVE_GETCWD to the conf stuff... if neither
is selected we could roll our own. HAVE_GETWD should be prefered
simply for the performance considerations. Or, we could add
findcwd() in util.c and use that throughout the code and
generate that using getwd/getcwd to avoid littering the code
itself with #ifdefs if used alot...
