Well, I'm willing; it is getting my employer to sign a disclaimer that is
holding me up at the moment.

Well, CVS coreutils (but not 5.3.0) added stat -f -c"%s%S", to
differentiate between %s (optimum block size for fast transfers) and %S
(fundamental block size, or the size of a block on disk), based on
information in statvfs but not statfs.
Also, your first cut at <sys/statvfs.h> left out ST_RDONLY and ST_NOSUID.
When you add those #defines, you might as well populate all the other
f_flag member bits with the ST_* namespace reserved to this header.

Thanks for implementing that.
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
