[bug] wordexp.h is not C++ friendly

I just found that wordexp.h is not C++ friendly because it doesn't wrap
declarations in extern "C". As a result, when called from within a C++
program, the wordexp() and wordfree() functions wind up as undefined
references during link.

I'd submit a patch but have already spent too much time today trying (and
failing miserably) to get newlib to build under Cygwin.
