Sounds good; I'll do that.

> If I am not mistaken, reordering the #if logic in path.c to use *only* statvfs() when it is available (and *not* trying both as is done now) would resolve the problems I am seeing with NetBSD and Solaris WITHOUT any need to change the configure logic. However, if one does want to keep the current logic (or at least something similar) it looks like configure should not assume statfs() is available without *also* confirming that "struct statfs" is available.
