Just to clarify it is pathconf() for the LINK_MAX inconsistency in
limits.h. The problem for sysconf is the inconsistency with the
OPEN_MAX value in limits.h.

In both cases above I believe the standard states that there should
not be a value defined in limits.h if the run-time value can vary.

In the tarball in tests/VSX4.FAILURES there is a more detailed
description of the failures and associated analysis of the problems.
(Note that there is a typo in that file to do with the sysconf/CLK_TCK
inconsistency, but the version in CVS has been corrected).
