I would like to get rid of the portable branch. It is only there for
really ancient glibc versions (which don't have futimens). I do still
update the branch and test it against RHEL5 just before each release.
But my intention is to do it one last time for the next 0.162 release,
and then just get rid of it.
Nobody really should be using it unless they are using glibc <= 2.5,
kernel <= 2.6.18 or gcc < 4.4. Hopefully by now those are really ancient
