Again, the code in question is support for a broken platform. On any
nonbroken platform, the prototypes will exist. If the argument does
happen to have the wrong size I suppose strange windows-only bugs
could result, but very little code in ffmpeg has legitimate use for
usleep anyway... Actually I wonder why it's used at all.

Cheap shots like this are really out of place and off-topic here.
You're welcome to RTFS and judge the code rather than jumping to
conclusions. FYI I build with -Werror and warnings on missing function
