/* Work around the bug in some systems whereby stat/lstat succeeds when
   given the zero-length file name argument.  The stat/lstat from SunOS 4.1.4
   has this bug.  Also work around a deficiency in Solaris systems (up to at
   least Solaris 9) regarding the semantics of `lstat ("symlink/", sbuf).'

/* lstat works differently on Linux and Solaris systems.  POSIX (see
   `pathname resolution' in the glossary) requires that programs like `ls'
   take into consideration the fact that FILE has a trailing slash when
   FILE is a symbolic link.  On Linux systems, the lstat function already
   has the desired semantics (in treating `lstat("symlink/",sbuf)' just like
   `lstat("symlink/.",sbuf)', but on Solaris it does not.

   If FILE has a trailing slash and specifies a symbolic link,
   then append a `.' to FILE and call lstat a second time.  */
