That's nonsense.

`fseek' is a standard part of the Standard C run-time library, which
should be present in all "hosted" implementations of C. If fseek
isn't part of C, neither is printf or malloc.

Sure it is; it's defined on the same page of the standard as fseek()

*Scheme* doesn't include random-access I/O in its standard run-time
library, but C does.
