I may not have time to do anything about this for at least a couple
weeks, but I can confirm that the absence of sys/timeb.h does break
the build of libsanitizer. Adhemerval's suggestion of keeping ftime
and <sys/timeb.h> around for at least another release, but issuing
warnings if ftime is actually used (attribute((deprecated)) maybe?)
seems reasonable to me.
