Functions like malloc, strlen, strcpy, etc need C includes. The offended
packages don't include these files, which is known to fail on GCC 4.3.
Older compilers include the required headers via other included headers
somehow, so these programs don't look broken on older compilers. The
example I showed is the common way to fix these packages when we run
into them.
