Hmm, that's a bug in OpenBSD then.

"The c99 utility shall recognize the following -l options for standard libraries:
  -l rt  This option shall make available... an implementation may search
         this library in the absence of this option.

OpenBSD is free to put the relevant functions into libc, but they should
either provide an empty librt or teach their compiler to ignore -l rt.
