FPC does not support abstraction of operating system errorcodes, and doesn't
plan to.

The experiences in this regard (e.g. with the DOS unit) were not
exactly positive.

Note that the fact that some header tries to hapzardly try to implement this
for just two platforms doesn't prove this is universally possible.
