OK, that means I can ignore texk/kpathsea/xt.ac.


Another question: It seems, that GETCWD_FORKS provided by
texk/kpathsea/common.ac is only used in texk/kpathsea/xgetcwd.c and
therefore should better be in texk/kpathsea/configure.in (or .ac).

Are there still systems needing that?  And if so, does the test really work.
I am sure it does for a static libc but have doubts for a shared libc
where fork/vfork might be bound to the libc versions.
