But basically it is at this point... We 'assume' that if the compile
dies it's because the header file wasn't found. After all, all we are
compiling is:

	#include <sys/resource.h>
	void main(void) { }

which is pretty basic. Again, we assume that if the above fails, the
ONLY reason is because sys/resource.h can't be found. We're not
trying to see if sys/resource.h "works" but basically if it exists,
which is what autoconf/configure does as well AFAIK.
