The c99 math function detection doesn't work correctly - false positives

Network is enabled by default but DOS lacks its own network stack.
There is an alternative: add --extra-cflags=-I/some/non-standard/path
(e.g. /usr/i386-pc-msdosdjgpp/include/watt32) to make the network headers

bktr.h is ok. /usr/include/sys/cdefs.h:

 * Deal with _ANSI_SOURCE:
 * If it is defined, and no other compilation environment is explicitly
 * requested, then define our internal feature-test macros to zero.  This
 * makes no difference to the preprocessor (undefined symbols in preprocessing
 * expressions are defined to have value zero), but makes it more convenient for
 * a test program to print out the values.
 * If a program mistakenly defines _ANSI_SOURCE and some other macro such as
 * _POSIX_C_SOURCE, we will assume that it wants the broader compilation
 * environment (and in fact we will never get here).
#if defined(_ANSI_SOURCE)       /* Hide almost everything. */
#define __POSIX_VISIBLE         0
#define __XSI_VISIBLE           0
#define __BSD_VISIBLE           0
#define __ISO_C_VISIBLE         1990
#elif defined(_C99_SOURCE)      /* Localism to specify strict C99 env. */
#define __POSIX_VISIBLE         0
#define __XSI_VISIBLE           0
#define __BSD_VISIBLE           0
#define __ISO_C_VISIBLE         1999
#else                           /* Default environment: show everything. */
#define __POSIX_VISIBLE         200112
#define __XSI_VISIBLE           600
#define __BSD_VISIBLE           1
#define __ISO_C_VISIBLE         1999

% cpp -std=c99 -D_ISOC99_SOURCE -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=200112 -dM /usr/include/sys/cdefs.h | grep VISIBLE
#define __ISO_C_VISIBLE 1999
#define __POSIX_VISIBLE 200112

and /usr/include/sys/featuretest.h:

#if !defined(_ANSI_SOURCE) && !defined(_POSIX_C_SOURCE) && \
    !defined(_XOPEN_SOURCE) && !defined(_NETBSD_SOURCE)
#define _NETBSD_SOURCE 1

probably aren't.

Excluding completely -static.

"r"((x86_reg)dstStride) -> "rm"((x86_reg)dstStride)

Btw, the Sun linker still complains about relocations even when objects are built with 
gcc -shared -Wl,-h,libavcodec.so.52 ...
Text relocation remains                         referenced
    against symbol                  offset      in file
