  Replace the use of warnx() with direct output to stderr using _write().
  This reduces the size of a statically-linked binary by approximately 100KB
  in a trivial "return (0)" test application.  readelf -S was used to verify
  that the .text section was reduced and that using strlen() saved a few
  more bytes over using sizeof().  Since the section of code is only called
  when environ is corrupt (program bug), I went with fewer bytes over fewer
  I made minor edits to the submitted patch to make the output resemble
