Eh, probably not.  Most likely, if you check whether one of the
functions you care about is in that file, that's good enough.  Either
all of them will be there or none of them.  That may sound
unprincipled, but I think in practice it works pretty well, and I
think it's basically the autoconf way.  You make the checks just
sophisticated enough to work on all of the platforms that actually
exist, and don't worry about hypothetical platforms where the header
file authors conspire to hose you.
