The relevant question (long-term) is not whether they exist now in gnulib,
but whether equivalent functionality exists in or would be appropriate to
add to gnulib.
If gnulib has something equivalent with a different interface, migrating
to that interface might be appropriate. And if it has nothing equivalent,
adding the libiberty code to gnulib might be appropriate.
