I'd want a warning that this rename() is very different than the one in the
current djgpp or most other DOS C compilers.  If you try to use it to move a
file to another directory, and the move fails because there is a file of the
same name in the target directory, that file is deleted and the move is
attempted again.  That's how I'd expect a unix rename to work, but a DOS
rename would just fail.
