There are right now eight private header files for unix, and at least five
of those are done across platforms be os2, aix, beos, or os390.  Checking
for these eight files isn't very extensible into the future, as we add
more header files that are cross-platform.

IMO, We either need to figure out a way to let the dependancies just do
this, or go back to having the C files specify it for themselves.
