Perhaps I'm being completely inept, but using gnulib-tool to import
modules/timespec just seems to bring in timespec.h (which includes only
declarations of timespec_add and timespec_sub) and timespec.c (which
contains no code.) The actual implementations in timespec-add.c and
timespec-sub.c are not imported.

I shall proceed on the basis that the implementations in gnulib's
timespec-add.c and timespec-sub.c are safe to bring into glibc and be
relicensed as LGPLv2.1+.

Thanks for your help.
