I'm not convinced that this is a problem with UnixLib. It seems to me
that UnixLib just doesn't provide precisely what we want.
UnixLib provides uname(), which amongst other things, is meant to return
the name of the OS and the type of hardware. It gets this wrong - it's
not NetSurf's fault, and it's not in NetSurf where it should be fixed.
