explain_link_or_die - make a new name for a file and report errors

#include <libexplain/link.h>
void explain_link_or_die(const char *oldpath, const char *newpath);

The explain_link_or_die function is used to call the link(2) system call. On failure an explanation will be printed to stderr, obtained from explain_link(3), and then the process terminates by calling exit(EXIT_FAILURE).
This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example:
explain_link_or_die(oldpath, newpath);
oldpath
The oldpath, exactly as to be passed to the link(2) system call.
newpath
The newpath, exactly as to be passed to the link(2) system call.
Returns:
This function only returns on success. On failure, prints an explanation and exits.

link(2)
make a new name for a file
explain_link(3)
explain link(2) errors
exit(2)
terminate the calling process
