Sure I'll have a quick hunt for dead defines. There must be quite a few by now...

Joseph's reply to my question made it clear the redirection is done elsewhere
in most cases, so that means we can remove the redirections of non-C90
symbols from string2.h as well:

I checked and there are no namespace issues introduced by my patch
(note strdup/strndup doesn't appear to redirect internally, so building with -Os
or removing the str(n)dup defines from string2.h causes a namespace bug).
