[New-bugs-announce] [issue42598] Some configure checks rely on implicit function declaration

New submission from Joshua Root <josh+python at root.id.au>:

There are several cases in the configure script of exit being used without including stdlib.h, and one case of close being used without including unistd.h. A compiler that does not allow implicit function declaration, such as clang in Xcode 12, will error out due to this, which may cause the affected checks to give incorrect results.
