Currently Haiku's link() returns B_UNSUPPORTED, it has been suggested that the proper return result should instead be EPERM. See discussion here:

Adding myself to this ticket so that I can update the fontconfig port if need be, if/when this gets fixed.

Thanks for the patch! It does a bit too much, though: most mappings are not necessary, as, for example EROFS and B_READ_ONLY_DEVICE, and most of the others resolve exactly to the same value.

The other error codes are the ones expected from file system drivers, so only EPERM should be mapped the way you did it.
