Gah. The situation gets murkier. I see in OS X Mountain Lion and Mavericks man pages for statvfs() where they describe the fields in struct statvfs:

           f_fsid Not meaningful in this implementation.

This is the field I need out of struct statvfs to know what the file system magic number is. Arrgh!

I'll keep looking into what would be a good solution here...
