Hmm.. Lets see: man 3 strcmp (same as str_cmp, but case sensitive).

       The  strcmp() function compares the two strings s1 and s2.
       It returns an integer less than, equal to, or greater than
       zero  if  s1  is  found, respectively, to be less than, to
       match, or be greater than s2.

So what you want is:

if (!str_cmp("all",buf))

[Personally, I prefer 'if (strcmp("all",buf) == 0)', because the above
 looks like if the strings aren't equal.  It just depends what you prefer]
