What better alternatives are you talking about? I should add that the
function names are based on gnulib.

You are complaining about the default namespace which on almost any OS
includes functions beyond SUS. I don't know what Roy wrote in his
original message, I am just telling you that blaming NetBSD for adding
common functions to the default namespace is off. If you want to ensure
that nothing messes with the namespace, use _XOPEN_SOURCE or similar
