    Is gettimeofday(2) good enough?

    I would think so. This is a question of the learning curve: once you understand
    how Slackware works, you keep it because, when updating, you still know where
    all the things are located. Only when Slackware is outdated beyond hope, you
    look around for other distributions. So once you've settled with RedHat, you
    keep it for the same reason.
