The headers are in /usr/include, but I assume that is just a typo

My advice is: don't rely on grep to find the symbol for you.  It could
be pasted together via cpp, in which case you would never find it.
Instead look at the output of "gcc -E" and use that to help you find
where it is coming from.

If you think it is coming from the compiler itself (doubtful in this
case), use "gcc -S" and read the assembly.
