There's a strcasecmp in BSD 4.3, and there's a stricmp (and strcmpi) in
Turbo C.  Neither are ANSI.

This, I would suspect, is because the -ansi switch only affects how the
_language_ is processed, not which functions rae included when you link in
the standard library.

Remember, testing something with your compiler isn't guaranteed to
indicate whether or not something you're doing is ANSI compliant or not --
the only way to be sure is to have the standard in front of you.
