Sorry, that's not right, since it fails in the following scenario:

  #define MISSING_SYS_CDEFS_H 27
  #include <glob.h>

in an ordinary program that is not using gnulib, but is using glibc.
MISSING_SYS_CDEFS_H is part of the user's namespace, and should not affect
how <glob.h> works.

Let's just use _SYS_CDEFS_H.  We can then remove all mention of
MISSING_SYS_CDEFS_H from glob_.h and undo the most recent change to
glob.m4.  This should be OK: if we run into some non-glibc that has
this problem it will probably use some other include file anyway.

Sorry, I hadn't thought through the implications of merging this back
into glibc.
