The <fts.h> API is deprecated, and very few packages use it. It doesn't
make a lot of sense to force everybody to have it in uClibc, just for
the sake of a few packages.

Alternatively, we could add a separate option to enable FTS support in
uClibc when needed, but this stuff always gets annoying with uClibc
external toolchains that may or may not have FTS support enabled.

The musl-fts solution is easy. It works for musl, it works for uClibc,
regardless of the uClibc configuration.
