I just checked and neither scandir* nor alphasort* are in POSIX-1996 or
POSIX-2001. I'm not trying to build vfs_netatalk here on VOS, but if I was,
it looks like I'd be writing some code first. I don't consider these
functions portable either. My vote is for sticking with functions in POSIX
if at all possible.
