Actually, we were porting du(1) rather than bsdtar/libarchive. The du
built into Tru64 is seriously broken and the FreeBSD one seemed an
easy solution. The fts(3) changes are functionally equivalent to
yours but implemented without the #ifdef's so the code is not portable.
 If the content of a directory changes whilst it is processing the
directory, it will give nonsense results - similar to:
$ du -sk .
du: File not found ./foo

Raise the issue with cvs@, it might still be possible (it would mean
that two different v1.1's would have existed, but the dates are
sufficiently separated that it may be allowed).
