I think that at least the comment preceding the part touched by this
patch should be updated. I'm not sure how to update the documentation
on top -- it does not say anything about unsupported libcs.

It seemed more consistent with the rest of the file, which also uses
"#if defined(...)" instead of "#ifdef". On the other hand, there are
two uses of "#ifndef" in the file. I do not have any strong opinion on
this.

Thanks! Will be fixed in the next version.
