I think access() is a standard POSIX function defined in unistd.h.
What OS are you using?

I did note that the man page says:

     Access() is a potential security hole and should never be used.

I don't think isReadable and isWritable are really useful, and they
aren't used internally in TagLib as far as I can tell, so it might be
best to remove them.
