Indeed. And the source file is copied over to the dist libgnu/ dir. But
it is not compiled in.

Windows+MSVC. I know this is not a gnulib target. Nevertheless the strptime
module has a dependency on strcase module, and - as in the case of chdir-long
above - the source file is copied over to libgnu/ by the bootstrap
script, but it is
not compiled in libgnu.la.
