As i think i said in another post, my suggesting stdlib.h was
over-zealousness on my part.  The missing stdio.h was real (got
an error about stderr reference) and noticed malloc usage while
i was there.  Bad assumptions lead to bad advice.

In another post, Jan reveals why the stdio.h problem was not
obvious until i tried to build: s/gnu-linux.h includes stdio.h.
This sort of thing is bound to happen again in the future, which
is why i suggest that it is better to include the headers you
need, rather than relying on system-dependent header files to do
it for you.
