It has been pointed out before that you need to get libc (at least the
parts of it that lead to lib/libc/arch/m68k/*  This is where those
files reside.

You get or start using the gcc distributed with sun-lamp
sources (2.4.5).  The libs changed significantly from 1.1 to 4.0 (I
think the major change was from 3.0 to 4.0) The current will
work with older libs however I am not sure what the side effects of
mixing like this would be, protentially bad.
