From the release notes:
* The obsolete function stime is no longer available to newly linked binaries, and its declaration has been removed from <time.h>. Programs that set the system time should use clock_settime instead.
Also note something which you may want to fix while in the area:
* We plan to remove the obsolete function ftime, and the header <sys/timeb.h>, in a future version of glibc. In this release, the header still exists but calling ftime will cause a compiler warning. All programs should use gettimeofday or clock_gettime instead.
- stime (old)
- clock_settime (new)
- "net-misc/getdate-1.2-r1 : getdate.c:(.text.startup+<snip>): undefined reference to stime". bug #709642
