In the pmax case, space is really tight, so one is tempted to make
compromises more easily...
After all, this is not a hosted environment with a standard library
or so.
libsa is special wrt use of b*/mem* functions anyway, eg:
$ grep bzero *.c|wc
        23        94      1021
$ grep memset *.c|wc
         5        27       225
It's only ustarfs which uses memset here.

Whoever touches this might get letter bombs from portmasters...
