That's not a problem, I only meant it to apply to future version.  (I
assume there will be future versions not based on branch-1-5 ;-)).

Yes, and another problem might be code that checks for strings.h
and/or memory.h, but not string.h.  It seems they might get the wrong

I don't know about math.h.  Math functions seem generally more
optional than other functions to me, depending on platform.  If your
patch only changed this for the self tests, that is probably OK, but
it seems weird for libtool/ltdl to require math functions.

I like this part. :-)
