some additions:

1. better use an unit that uses libc, like initc, that abstracts the exact
name of libc, making it easier to fix for BeOS/Haiku and embedded targets

2. The wikipedia article in the wiki has some pointers what to replace libc
with. Directly declaring prototypes for libc is the least desirable solution
(after using unit libc).


3. I thought recent synapses fixed this?
