do I have to add 1 for the leading slash and 1 for the terminating nul

pathconf() gives you the buffer size needed; you don't need to add anything.
The value on Linux is always 4096 (see include/linux/limits.h).

OK, thanks for confirming my assumption.

And I was actually wrong in thinking that new glibc stopped providing
PATH_MAX, it was the package not including <limits.h>. So calling
pathconf() isn't actually needed here.

thanks,
Michal
