The unix rtl has been thoroughly reworked. The identifiers you are 
refering to are probably in unit unix now.

You shouldn't be using these routines anyway, but use similar routines in
sysutils that use ansistring and don't have 255 char limits.

The routines are only in linux because they are needed for legacy unit dos.
