Sorry you are quite right, I should have said GNU libc (is that used
on other than Linux and HURD these days?).

In this case, GNU libc is not a requirement for guile, which runs on
free operating systems with GNU libc, free OS w/o GNU libc and
non-free OS.  The real reference is to the C99-specified strftime.  I
think what bothered me was the broken link in the info file since I do
not have GNU libc info files installed.  I tried to follow it, and
then realized it was a cross-file link.  So, sure, adding "or see
strftime(3)" would help.
