How would one do to be portable to both "some versions of FreeBSD" and
MSVC, then? (MSVC 10 also lacks strings.h, btw) One camp needs
HAVE_STRINGS_H to be defined and one needs to not have it defined.
Sounds evil to unconditionally define it under those circumstances. Or
have I misunderstood something?
