The file tape_h_fixup.h was introduced for AIX if I remember correctly.
AIX seems to support similar commands but with a different name. Such a
simple mapping of names will not be possible on Unixware. Even GNU
tar seems not to support tape drives on Unixware, at least I could not
find any of the ioctl definitions from sys/tape.h in the GNU tar archive.

Amanda has some support for Unixware and in time I might take a closer
look at that. Someone else will have to test, there's no tape drive
attached to the box.
