I think that was a special case. db1-compat used _LIBC until #163264 was
filed because its source originally came straight from glibc and was
hacked to build independently using an extremely rusty chainsaw.
Although I suppose it's worth looking out for, normal packages shouldn't
and I think almost universally won't be defining _LIBC.
