I was thinking about our dll implementations. crtdll and msvcrtd both
link to msvcrt. Looking at the implementations of these DLLs, it seems
you are right. No need to not compile them with -fno-builtin.

On the other hand, regedit, taskmgr, xcopy, wordpad and notepad are
linked to msvcrt. Should that be changed?
