Cygwin exports a couple of libiberty functions but, ironically, strerror
is not one of them.  It really doesn't even need to build strerror but
there doesn't seem to be a mechanism for excluding it so the patch just
makes it possible to compile it.  Then it ends up, unused, in libiberty.a.

I think that this has proved to me that we have to remove the libiberty
dependence, though.  It really doesn't make any sense to have to go
to this amount of effort for this one target.
