FWIW, I agree.  I didn't check in this particular case, but I'm guessing 
that s/gnu-linux.h included stdio.h because it used something from that 
header.  Other system-dependent headers might not do that.  Including 
stdio.h in each of the *.c files that use stdio will thus prevent 
compilation problems on some platforms.
