It is quite important, if the program is to work correctly (for example `who' which reads utmp directly shows no output, while `w' which uses the appropriate libc functions shows users logged in).

You want to look for the functions, utmpname, setutent, getutent, pututline, etc. (i.e. the list in the message you replied to).
