I've deleted the declaration of strptime from lo-cutils.c but added a

  char *
  oct_strptime (const char *buf, const char *format, struct tm *tm)
    return (char *) strptime (buf, format, tm);

Is there any problem with that?

BTW, why does FreeBSD declare it as returning const char*?  I don't
know of any other system that does.  They all provide declarations
with a non-const return type.
