dpns_readlink - read value of a symbolic link in the DPNS Name Server
int dpns_readlink (const char *path, char *buf, size_t bufsiz)
dpns_readlink reads the value of a symbolic link in the DPNS Name Server.
path specifies the link name relative to the current DPNS directory or the full DPNS pathname.
buf points at a buffer to receive the value.
bufsiz gives the buffer size.

ter case, serrno is set appropriately.
ENOENT The named link does not exist or is a null pathname.
EACCES Search permission is denied on a component of the path prefix.
EFAULT path or buf is a NULL pointer.
ENOTDIR A component of path prefix is not a directory.
EINVAL path is not a symbolic link.
ENAMETOOLONG The length of path exceeds CA_MAXPATHLEN or the length of a path component exceeds CA_MAXNAMELEN.
SENOSHOST Host unknown.
