That make sense. Unlike many of the other functions in libiberty, The
basename() function itself in libiberty/basename.c is public domain --
which may be good for our purposes, or it may be bad (I dunno, and cgf
has already made the call: it's "suspect". Fair enough.) In any case,
it does no harm to have "our" own version that can be copyright-assigned
to Red Hat and distributed under the Cygwin license.
