That's the reason why the first option in my list of alternatives to
get a declaration for exit() was `#include <stdlib.h>'.  If that
doesn't work, we get to look for a declaration of exit() that works
with it.

The problem is that there are a number of tests in autoconf that call
exit() regardless of what the user code is.  Since we need a solution
for these tests, why not make it general?
