"getpagesize" is not POSIX.  This is all getting way too yummy.  :-(
How about forgetting mmap because its implementation is too lame?

  curr_data_mapped = BOOL_TRUE;

  /*  IF the file size is a multiple of the page size,
      THEN sometimes you will seg fault trying to access a trailing byte */

#if defined( PAGESIZE )
#elif defined (HAVE_GETPAGESIZE)
# define FI_PAGEMASK (getpagesize()-1)
# define FI_PAGEMASK 0x0FFF

  if ((stbf.st_size & FI_PAGEMASK) == 0)
    res = (char*)BAD_ADDR;
    res = (char*)mmap ((void*)NULL, data_map_size, PROT_READ,
                       MAP_PRIVATE, data_map_fd, 0);
  if (res == (char*)BAD_ADDR)
      curr_data_mapped = BOOL_FALSE;
      res = load_file_data ( fdopen (data_map_fd, "r"));
