IIRC, SunOS 4 had <string.h>; the problem at that time was that
<string.h> existed but some of the functions were declared in
<strings.h> instead, which led to warnings. You could live with the
warnings because 'int' and 'char *' were both 32-bit wide.

GCC never provided a <ctype.h>, <errno.h>, <math.h>, <setjmp.h>,
<signal.h>, <stdio.h>, <string.h> or <time.h> of its own.
