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 Only when Slackware is outdated beyond hope, you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.
