Thanks for that.  I haven't yet had an opportunity to compile (as I've
got other things compiling), however it certainly looks like it should
fix it.
Having done a little more digging it appears that PATH_MAX is defined on
Solaris 9 in /usr/include/limits.h.  I wonder whether...

#ifndef _LIMITS_H
#include <limits.h>

At some point may be a better solution (esp as limits.h on my system
defines PATH_MAX as 1024).  I suspect the if/endif isn't necessary, but
C isn't my first language.
