RHEL is probably the only "large" Linux distribution that doesn't have
it yet (realpath(1) was added in v8.15).

FreeBSD has a realpath(1) but OS X doesn't.  OSX can install gnu
coreutils to provide greadlink.

I think there are enough variations to justify adding this as a shell
function in the platform-specific code.  Each platform can define
"real_path" and implement it as desired (possibly even in pure sh).

I would aim for the syntax of realpath(1) without parameters (because
they differ between platforms).

realpath FILE...

If using shell functions as a fall-back, this page seems a good place to start:

I'm skeptical that his real_path() properly handles a link that refers
to a path containing an embedded space.
