Why the change from "fnmatch.h" to <fnmatch.h>?

Also, are the files in gnulib and libiberty semantically identical?
The wiki page does not say anything about this. How did you check
this?

GCC can run on other systems besides OSX and GNU/Linux, how can you
test that your change does not break anything on those systems?
