broken AIX 4.3.3 strnlen as noted at gnu.org web based documentation of
autoconf in section "5.5.1 Portability of C Functions"
Please try the patch on an AIX system to see the break. I can duplicte
the broken strnlen behavior easy enough, but not the broken strndup.
However, recompiling and using the builtin functions results in AIX
passing the smbtorture tests out of the box.
