Compiling fileutils 4.1 with OS/2

I downloaded the latest version of the GNU file utilities from
ftp.gnu.org and tried to compile it with OS/2. I encountered a lot of
problems, until I finally got some executables. (And there is some
work to do to get the executables working properly).

There are three kinds of problems: 
1) configuring problems
2) symbolic links (the functions lstat, readlink, link, ...
   are missing)
3) OS/2 specific stuff: e.g. extended file attributes

I think all of them can be solved without too much trouble.

My first question is: Are you willing to implement my changes into
the offical distribution? If yes, are you willing to discuss
how to solve some problems consistently (e.g. by introducing a new
macro HAVE_LSTAT)?
