After discussing this with others from a wider perspective:
Sorry but no. This is a POSIX mandated function and even if this particular one 
would be easy to work around in one way or another, the next one(s) that we 
introduce might not be, in fact are not likely to be. If we let this door open 
ajar now, we'd have to consider non-POSIX systems for every new addition that 
we do, and that's just not an option at all.  We think OS2 support will be 
better off in a separately maintained tree - as it has been all along - for 
everybody involved.

I know I suggested adding this particular check myself, that was a mistake on 
my behalf having not thought about the bigger picture. Apologies for sending 
you on a  fools errand.
