Description: Binary data

Well, I don't know what to do about this :(  I suppose that line
1025 is something like this:

that's the only occurrence of gets I found in lib/stdio.in.h.

I could disable the C++ tests at test-suite runtime if the C++
compiler is not happy with a simple #include <iostream>.

I could also try to disable the use of gnulib in our test suite.
Actually, since we are trying to check that our generated headers
work properly and are reasonably portable, that would make a lot
of sense.  However I don't remember why the test suite started
to use gnulib (it might even be by accident, I don't know), and I
don't plan to spend time on detaching the test suite from gnulib
right now.

Do you see options I missed?
