Interesting. I, too, would have figured that libpgport is lower-level, because any higher-level library might need the libc functions it replaces. Moving wait_error.c to libpgcommon makes sense. dirmod.c perhaps deserves a split into libpgcommon parts (e.g. pgfnames()) and libpgport parts (e.g. pgrename()). Hopefully there's not much more.
