No idea, really. It seems to be a gcc on linux issue,
according to the comment in the config-mem.h file.
Should I ask gcc/libc developers ? Any idea whom to
bother first?

I'll try it with <string.h>, if that fails with gcc on
linux, then I guess I'll revert to the old form, and
#ifdef LINUX it. Is LINUX the right platform define?

Every platform seems to have its own ideas about swab.
I remember my last attempt to compile on mingw also
gave me some swab prototype problems. As the ssize_t
definition is by the OpenGroup, should I file a bug
report for FreeBSD somewhere? If so, where?
