mmap() is not entirely portable to all the OSes we have GIMP working on
currently.  Specifically, it isn't implemented on BeOS.  And unfortunately
it can't be emulated either because a similar function does not exist.
(On win32 I think mmap() doesn't exist either but something very similar
does exist.)
