This is not the right approach. Libc is a Kylix compatibility unit, 
anything that Kylix doesn't have does not have to be provided by FPC 
(after all this is, and i386 assumptions by Borland is why it is 386 

If you want to use high resulotion timers, please integrate them with 
FPC's Unix access units.

Now, if you have Kylix code and absolutely need to use high 
resultion timers in your code, I am not principally against adding them to 
the libc unit. But in principle, libc should not be used for new code.
