Yes, clang is specifically looking for a file named "cstdlib" in the include path.

1.  In general, it's better all-around if the compiler doesn't have hacks about
specific file names.

2.  <cstdlib> specifically is usually more than just "#include <stdlib.h>" because
it's required to declare things in namespace std, and that's often done
after-the-fact with using declarations.
