OK, here's a patch to add <bits/c++config.h> to all the <cxxx> headers
that don't have it.

Tested powerpc64le-linux, committed to trunk.

I must admit I don't understand why many of the <cxxx> headers
include the <xxx.h> header and <bits/c++config.h> outside the include
guard ... AFAIK it's only needed for <assert.h>, and will lead to
<cxxx> headers being unnecessarily re-opened if included twice, but
I'm not going to change that.

Ed sent a patch to add <cuchar> which I'm going to tidy up and commit.
