What AC_FUNC_STRNLEN does is use AC_LIBOBJ(strnlen) if the system
doesn't have it. What this does is look for a file strnlen.c providing
a portable implementation (among other things). So, you have to
provide another implementation or some equivalent compatibility hack.

Looks like Julien did the right thing.
