At first glance, I'd agree, but then I see that no other module depends
on either of those, in spite of the fact that those functions are used
in over 30 of gnulib's lib/*.c files.

So either it doesn't matter (because all systems provide those
two functions), or people have been adding those files manually,
or no one is using gnulib.
