There are multiple degrees of Posix compliance.

While X/Open documents the Posix requirements for implementing fork(), so far I have not found anything that requires that fork() be present.

Configure tests for c-python also test for the presence of fork().

OpenVMS complies with many Posix standards, but does not implement fork().
