I don't like this; it's too heavy-handed on working platforms.  Rather, 
we should provide a gnulib wrapper function for fdatasync() that falls 
back on fsync() when compiled on MacOS.  I'll get that done today 
(although for the purposes of rc3, if DV would rather push this patch 
now, and revert it later when the gnulib changes are complete, so that 
rc3 can go out before I get things done, that would work too).
