Yes.  I think that all of the protoypes I touched: strtof(), strtoll(),
strtoull() and strtold() need this attention.

As currently written, it doesn't test if __STDC_VERSION__ is defined (and so
uses the assumed value of 0 when compiling C++), so do we actually need to
test if __cplusplus is defined?

Would you like me to write a patch?
