Please don't tell the Police. We all have families.
If you look a bit closer you might realize that this passage is
surrounded by the #else block of a #if defined(_LIBC) directive. So this
is only done on systems that do not come with a libc. I really have no
clue why we are supporting them but someone thought this would be
important back in 2002.
