That's the problem! I vote +0 and tending to -1 here, because we cannot
be sure if the other SVR4 derivates also have a really working mmap() and
shmget(). And I think SINIX is not very representative for SVR4. If we include
this one then perhaps in 1.2.1 and only when we are either tested it by
ourself in a much wider area or at least checked other good-working programs
which do a similar decision (e.g.  INN, etc.).
