Thanks, File::Sync seems to work:

use File::Sync qw(fsync); open my $f, '/tmp' or die $!; fsync($f) or die "fsync: $!\n";

I should have done a CPAN search myself...

However, IO::Handle is a core module, File::Sync isn't. As IO::Handle already has a sync() method (and perldoc POSIX documents that this is how to do fsync), it seems a bit excessive to pull in CPAN modules just because your file handle is a directory handle...
