Actually...
khan% \ls -l /proc/self/cwd
lr-x------    1 stric    adm             0 Aug 23 22:36 /proc/self/cwd ->
khan% \ls -lF /proc/self/cwd
lr-x------    1 stric    adm             0 Aug 23 22:36 /proc/self/cwd -> /
khan% pwd
/home/adm/stric

So.. it's a symlink that doesn't point at anything (thus 0 bytes)..
Dunno why they've done it like this.. but they have..

AIX has no /proc and IRIX' /proc has no such direct thingie.

They've moved the p* utils to /bin now (compability symlinks in
/usr/proc/bin though) in Solaris 8...
