For RCS, I would think so.  _Exit is less portable
and does not provide any advantages on GNU or on
Unix-like platforms (it is functionally equivalent to _exit
on these platforms).  Perhaps there is some advantage to _Exit
on non-free platforms but I wouldn't worry about that
unless the topic comes up and you have a good expert
on those platforms available.
