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.
