Sorry, my mistake. Actually, it is "NetBSD 1.4.3_ALPHA."

It's very stange. I have man pages for both strlcpy and strlcat, but I
don't see either of them in /usr/include/string.h. Unfortunately
1.4.3_ALPHA is the highest available version for the pc98 machine I am on.
Thanks anyway. It was a very good learning experience.
