It's routine to assume that I'm going to use libc?!?

I understand the -fnobuiltins thing... particularly if the compiler
generates code that makes a function call, instead of generating
the code inline, and saving the call/return (kind of makes you want
-fnobuiltins by default, though, since "I'm smarter than the compiler
writers" is a common base assumption).

I *really* don't understand them making assumptions about the
instrumentation that I may or may not have put between myself and
the libc implementations of functions, though.

Historically, for code portability, I used to carry around my own
printf(), and I didn't even have a puts(); this "optimization" would
*really* break things.
