Yes GNU Make will still use glibc version of glob when it's available.

All I'm doing is cleaning up some of the really old / unnecessary stuff
in the local glob/fnmatch implementations that ship with GNU make
(removing support for pre-ANSI C function declarations, removing
deprecated "register" keyword, assuming C headers like stdint.h and
stdlib.h and that they correctly declare C functions like malloc,
realloc, etc.)  I don't plan to change (for example) the configure.ac
code that decides when to use the local vs. system implementation.

Previously I had tabled bug reports for those files since they weren't
"owned" by GNU make, but that doesn't seem tenable anymore since I
can't really envision being able to adopt the gnulib implementation of
