 Hmm.  I think you're right.
 Well i'm not really working with those headers, and i still see
 a '#define _GNU_SOURCE' on top of the one that's really important
 for me.

 Yes, a lot of conditions and a lot of what standards produce most
 of the time, so thanks for all those work on standard compliance.
 Nonetheless - the bug is triggered only with -std=c89, and only on
 NetBSD 6.0.  And in the meanwhile i've found it.
 In fact it has nothing to do with putc_unlocked() (i was so clumsy
 that i even tried to compile with -pthread and -D_REENTRANT, and
 it was still expanded to __sputc() or so - amazing!), but it is in
 fact alloca(3) that returns an invalid buffer:
   %fwrite_td() calls ac_alloc for 29
   fwrite_td() calls memcpy (From: <>
   fwrite_td() before delctrl (^])29
   fwrite_td() calls prefixwrite (^])29
   *29 (0xbfbf9254)()*^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^>
 From the alloca(3) manual i see nothing special to adhere to,
 i would not describe 29 bytes as a "large unbounded allocation".
 The CFLAGS are simply '-std=c89 -O2', so nothing special at all.
 I think this is worth another PR?
