In general, it's not recommended to add a stub function which returns
ENOSYS (i.e. "Function not implemented") unless there is strong reason
to do so.
Because autoconf fails to detect that the function is not really
implemented, and fails to provide alternate implementation that
the autoconf'ed application includes.
And because there are many applications which do not check the
ENOSYS erorr correctly and fails to work.
