Sounds like your library is broken, but adding stddef.h is easy enough;
patches welcome as always.

We need a strong hash function as this replaces the previous weak hash +
memcmp when checking incoming glyphs for matches with the existing set
of server-resident glyphs. One could argue that this must be
cryptographically secure to avoid applications uploading misleading
Patches to use alternate SHA1 implementation would also be welcome, if
anyone has reason to choose other bits.
