_AC_PROG_CXX_EXIT_DECLARATION: don't `#include <stdlib.h>'

If anyone knows of a system on which <stdlib.h> (or any other header)
should be included from confdefs.h (later known as config.h),
please speak up now.

This change makes it so that when running configure with e.g., CC=aCC,
you'll now get this in confdefs.h:

  #ifdef __cplusplus
  extern "C" void exit (int);

rather than this:

  #ifdef __cplusplus
  #include <stdlib.h>

which would cause things like AC_REPLACE_FUNCS(getopt)
mistakenly to replace getopt on systems that already provide it.

        * lib/autoconf/c.m4 (_AC_PROG_CXX_EXIT_DECLARATION): Remove
        `#include <stdlib.h>' from the list;  we should never make
        confdefs.h include <stdlib.h> or <cstdlib>, because the resulting
        namespace pollution would cause other tests to fail.  Configure scripts
        run with some older versions of g++ and HP's aCC would fail due to
        such an #include.  Reports here and
