Newlib assumes that certain routines are provided by the OS or board
depedendent code.  In the m68k-coff configuration, it is strictly the
responsibility of the board dependent code (see libgloss) to provide

In other configurations, such as m68k-rtems, these routines are provided
by the operating system.
