Whether or not memset and memcpy should be listed as dependencies, depends
on your porting target. For ca. a year or two, the majority of gnulib users
targets portability only to systems that support ANSI C 89, i.e. to systems
that date from ca. 1992 or newer. These targets don't need memset and memcpy
replacements any more.

If you target older systems too (I think GNU tar still does this), you need
to add those gnulib modules listed in section "Support for systems lacking
ANSI C 89" of MODULES.html which are relevant to your package.
