Some issues with fileutils-4.1

Trying fileutils-4.1 on Linux 2.4.17 i586 unknown, libc-5.4.46

- `make check' after compilation gives failures in
  no-deref-link[1-3] and same-file.

- `cp -i -f' asks for confirmation before overwriting something,
  `mv -i -f' does not. Might be a matter of taste, but it seems

- When copying a file or moving a file across file systems, and the
  destination FS does not have enough space, cp/mv leaves a partial
  file there. This might not be strictly a bug, but it's quite
  inconvenient since it fills up the FS completely, and it can (if
  not removed manually) easily mislead someone who later looks at
  the destination directory into thinking the complete file is there
  (even `file' won't notice the truncation in many cases).
