To be more precise: this is not a feature of Linux - it's a feature of the c
lib. Linux systems ususally use glibc, but small embedded systems may use
other clibs, such as ulibc. This is why lots of people gave up on "guess
the macro" years ago and changed to some kind of autoconf. There are too
many variables.
