Follow-up Comment #38, patch #5952 (project lwip):

I sort of agree with our current philosophy, which is to use lwIP local
functions where possible, and libc only where we have to.  My current
environment is very lean, with a very sparse libc.  For example, I don't have
a rand.  

One of the reasons I chose lwIP was because it was easily ported to such an
environment.  Adding a rand() function in itself is no big deal, but adds to
the porting cost, and time involved.  Having a default lwIP defined rand for
autoip would be nice, with maybe an option to use the libc rand.
