Compared lists of locale_t headers and functions for POSIX, Cygwin,

* GNU also supports wchar.h(wcsftime_l) and time.h(strptime_l);

* GNU also defines string.h(str[n]casecmp_l) functions as an extension,
   as well as in POSIX specified strings.h.

I just applied a couple of patches to add the missing strerror_l,
strptime_l and wcsftime_l.  I also added the missing str[n]casecmp_l
prototypes to strings.h.  I'll create a new test release in a bit.

GNU duplicates the POSIX strings.h(str[n]casecmp_l) in string.h also.

i.e. str[n]casecmp_l should be defined under #if __POSIX_VISIBLE >= 200809
but not defined under #ifdef __GNU_VISIBLE in string*s*.h,
and defined under #ifdef __GNU_VISIBLE but not defined under
#if __POSIX_VISIBLE >= 200809 in *string*.h;
strerror_l should be under #if __POSIX_VISIBLE  >= 200809 in *string*.h,
or its #includes.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
