I'm trying to package something that uses strverscmp(3).  This is a
GNU libc extension, and also present in libiberty.  However, I can't
find it in any [installed] NetBSD library.  Am I missing something?  I
want the package to be portable, but it seems a little strange to
include devel/libiberty just to satisfy something so simple.  Has
anyone come across this before?  I'm wondering if there's a
"preferred" way to handle this.
