I'm neither the assignee nor a reviewer of the bug.

So far in this discussion you have:

1) claimed that "we never actually use it [bzero] because it depends on 
some BSD defines that we never set." which is not true and takes a 
minute to verify;

2) pointed to another bug without any comments on how it is relevant to 
the discussion. It later turned out to be a completely different issue 
which answers none of my questions, nor does it contribute anything to 
the discussion.

3) asked me to spend time proving your claims to make you retract your 
other claims in exchange.

I don't think I have more time to waste on this discussion, sorry.

Add a C++ test. If it still passes in autoconf/cmake, but breaks the 
actual build, look for differences in compiler flags, includes and 
defines between build and autoconf/cmake environments.
