We don't have support for _FORTIFY_SOURCE #define in UnixLib.  So the
functions which are normally declared in bits/wchar2.h are not there.
I've just fixed UnixLib wchar.h header for this problem.  Thanks for
the report.

Incidently, I've also upgraded trunk to use binutils 2.14 (i.e. last
month's release, instead of version 2.13.2) and also included the build
of libtool which will hopefully result in more reliable compiler builds.

If you do a 'svn update' now, do 'make clean' first in order to do a full
build as otherwise you won't have all those changes.
