I decided to tackle the ANSI C assumption next.  If we assume an ANSI C
compiler, then a number of checks for header files required by the standard
can be deleted.  Working from the list here:


I started zapping tests.  Once finished, I tried building.  Everything
seemed to work fine except the _locale module wouldn't build because my Mac
doesn't have wchar.h.

So, is wchar.h part of the ANSI C standard or is Apple's GCC setup (Mac OS X
10.2.8, gcc 3.3) in error?
