My glibc (2.1.2) does the same:

You should talk to Graham Nelson, writer of the Inform compiler, one day. 
*You* known you're running on a *nix system. *He* had to write code that would 
compile on everything from 16-bit DOS to Linux to MacOS to Atari ST... He's 
been known to rant quite astonishingly on C portability.
