Subject: realpath() depends on a mounted /proc to work


I observed that realpath() doesn't work correctly without a mounted
/proc while experimenting in a chroot system, where musl is the
default libc. OTOH, the same program statically linked against glibc
worked just as expected.

Is the dependence on a mounted /proc intentional? Then what's the
rationale behind it?
