The requirements before libstdc++ will build with support
for wchar_t are too restrictive.

Changing cwchar and cwctype to not try import the missing
functions into std namespace and changing config.h and c++config.h to define _GLIBCPP_USE_WCHAR_T and rebuilding libstdc++ works without problem on solaris 8, although autoconf had decided that this wasn't possible.

Support for wchar_t is mandated by the C++ standard - gcc should make more extensive efforts to support it on any platform that it reasonably can (i.e. supports the set of functions used by libstdc++).
