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,

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.
They were already declared in string,h.
Sorry for the poor explanation, but what I was failing to say clearly
was that:
* there does not appear to be any strerror_l declaration in string.h
and that str[n]casecmp_l conditionals __GNU_VISIBLE and __POSIX_VISIBLE >= 200809
appear to be flipped around between string.h and strings.h declarations in:
Care to send patches to the newlib list?  Patches (git format-patch)
rule over descriptions alone :}

Knew there were good reasons I avoided git for a decade!
Developers never heard of KISS, unlike you folks at Cygwin ;^> and the folks at hg.

git show attached in case my patch email does not get thru or is scrambled some way,
so it does not apply with git am, after my screwing around with git and mailx.

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