	So, what is the provenance of this CURDIR variable? Has it
 been blessed by POSIX? indeed not. However, I see that both $PWD and
 the pwd utility are sanctioned by POSIX; so for maximal portability
 scripts should *NOT* use  CURDIR, the should either use PWD, or call
 pwd themselves, like the example did.
