This isn't necessarily an icc bug.  It's possible that the #define trick
jumbo.h uses to define its custom memmem() clashes with the system's
headers for MIC even when they're not providing a memmem().  This is
weird, though.

Defining _GNU_SOURCE enables the system's memmem(), and thus disables
our custom one in jumbo.[ch].

Yes, please.  Should use memset() instead.

OK, please fix it.
