 I think you should malloc() the proper length sizeof(dirent) +
 MAX(PATH_MAX, NAME_MAX) + 1, which is what the documentation for the
 function actually says is needed. Retarded systems like hurd that
 don't follow the interface are not our problem. For the alignment
 issue you should use a union, like the documentation suggests.

+Is there a platform for which PATH_MAX isn't defined?
+(i.e. why have the `#ifndef PATH_MAX' block?)
