Bug #9752: r45598 causes Errno::EINVAL on Solaris

----------------------------------------
On Solaris, after r45598, the following error occurs.

<pre>
./miniruby: Invalid argument - getcwd (Errno::EINVAL)
</pre>

It seems that getcwd(NULL, 0) is not supported in Solaris.
The Solaris man page of getcwd(3c) says:
<pre>
     If buf is a null pointer, getcwd()  obtains  size  bytes  of
     space using malloc(3C). The pointer returned by getcwd() can
     be used as the argument in a subsequent call to free().
</pre>
But no description when the size is zero.
