Which would be wrong. Its not just posix. More of the code in src/solaris
is related to UI stuff like GTK and core X11 APIs than anything else and
none of it is defined by posix. Also there's printing etc ..
If you are going that route you'd be better to call it src/x11 and have that
imply posix .. rather than your misleading suggestion.
"unix" has a better implication of more than just posix.
src/solaris is 13.4Mb in size.
A "du" check of the classes and native subdirs finds that at least
9.7Mb that is GUI related. 4.5Mb in classes and 5.2Mb in native.
