In general, yes.  However, I think that only those libraries that use
the affected interfaces in libc need a bump in this case.  Maybe we
should look to see which libraries are affected rather than a blind

The blind bump is the only way to make sure, but so far the project
has been unable to commit to doing such a bump due to the pain that
trying to do it in ports would also cause.  But that's my soapbox...
