Since a colleague of mine has just finished porting fts(3) to Tru64, I
was interested in the changes you needed to make.  Having looked, it
seems that your changes are primarily aimed at Linux compatibility
rather than general portability - it's unlikely that your fts.c will
be usable on anything other than Linux systems due to the '#ifdef LINUX'
near the top - if this was '#ifndef __FreeBSD__', the portability would
be enhanced.

Also, why wasn't this done as a repocopy?  This would have made it far
easier to see the changes.
