I think I have most of it fixed, but right now I'm removing c_codecvt.c
from libio/ by hand, just to get further.  I need to go teach
myself how to use AM_CONDITIONAL.

After getting through those, at this moment it gets to and ICEs
with "Error reporting routines re-entered" but without printing any
warnings nor errors.  Gaby?  Is that you?

Done.  I'll check these changes in by themselves soon.

Ah, this is good to know.

I'd been flipping it on based on "#ifdef _GLIBCPP_USING_THREADS" which in
turn is defined if any of the thread packages are --enable'd.  I'll check
this in too.

At the moment there is an extremely dummy declaration.  I won't check this
in yet.  _IO_lock_t is another one that gets passed around, but only has
a syntax-legal declaration with _IO_MTSAFE_IO.

I've been finding them based on whether we $need_libio or not.  I'll check
this in so you can let see whether it works on your Solarii.  This and
the USING_THREADS resulted in some additions to acconfig.h.

If _G_HAVE_SYS_CDEFS is changed from its hardcoded value of 1 in _G_config.h,
then we're missing all the things like __THROW, __const, __BEGIN_DECLS, etc.
I don't know which ones are being used; libio.h pukes on __THROW and I
haven't tried to weed them all out and move replacements into libio.h
(like __P and __PMT already are).
