A patch to do this is already in the trunk.
Do we need this on the branch?  My impression was that we did not,
since as far as I know libgcj hasn't been ported to any system that
doesn't have strdup().  fastjar is only needed (and should only be
built) if you are building the java support.

However if we do need it, it is a relatively simple matter to bring
the patch from the trunk to the branch.

In this case, as there is only one use of strdup(), a different
approach was taken: we just use our own (renamed) strdup()
implementation all the time.
