	I've been seeing this as well. I believe our gcc internally
prototypes strlen as 'size_t strlen(char *)', and size_t is a ulong; of
course, the default implicit declaration has an int return type, so
this doesn't match. I'm just not sure what kind of fix would be
appropriate; whatever it is should be submittable back to the FSF, so
just throwing in "#include <string.h>" isn't it, even if it's wrapped
with ifdefs. I need to do some more digging on this.
