You are "probably" ok. Those headers from GNU are supposed to
be portable across all systems, hence are very complex in
how they interact with each other and the environment. Some other
file, which is included by the header <string.h> may be the
problem. Those things include files to define bit fields, and
all kinds of other stuff.

I helped do a port of the GCC to the Zilog Z800x family of processors,
and it isn't an easy thing.

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
