Just for the record, we don't exactly "depend" on strnlen in Jumbo. If 
it's not available natively, we simply supply our own. We do just this 
for a whole *lot* of little things now and most of it is in jumbo.[ch]. 
I think/hope we are almost as portable as John Proper (in a few cases 
actually more portable), except we more or less depend on gmake.
