Indeed! Thanks for the correction, it seems like I've forgotten that we talked

I totally agree.

To answer Luiz last mail:

Everything seems fine (and actually is) because none of those two headers
declare a function. So there is no need to link anything.
It might be a bit petty to call this a dependency on libc, but, in my opinion,
it certainly is.
